This report presents the Children’s Climate Risk Index (CCRI). Through the analysis of data the CCRI generates new global evidence on the amount of children that are currently exposed to climate and environmental hazards, shocks and stresses. Furthermore, the CCRI assists in understanding and measuring the risks of climate and environmental shocks or stresses leading to the erosion of development progress, the deepening of deprivation and/or humanitarian situations affecting children or vulnerable households and groups.
