No place to call home: protecting children’s rights when the changing climate forces them to flee

Source(s):  United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)

This report discusses the impact on children’s rights when children are forced to flee from home because of climate change. Extreme weather, rising sea levels, drought and melting glaciers are just some of the changes that are already placing huge pressure on children and their communities.As in every crisis, children are the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change that force them from their homes in the first place.

This reports reveals that, despite the enormous risks they face, children have been almost entirely overlooked in the emerging debate, research and policies on climate-driven migration and displacement. It sets out the vital steps that states must take to place children’s rights at the heart of international and national climate, humanitarian, disaster risk reduction, development, and migration strategies.
