Our climate, our children, our responsibility

The implications of climate change for the world's children


Date of publication:  01 Jan 2008 Publisher:  Unicef Uk Publication type:  Report / Study / Data

This report draws attention to the impacts of climate change upon children. It strongly argues that both mitigation and adaptation are necessary. There is increasing global consensus on the way forward, including the need for international collective action.The report seeks to illustrate how climate change may impact on every aspect of the most vulnerable children?s lives and how children themselves can be central to the response. In doing so, UNICEF UK sets out the challenge before us to rapidly develop a greater understanding of the impact of climate change on children and take appropriate measures to protect them from its consequences.
