Climate change and the effect of “El Niño” severely disrupts weather patterns in Peru causing heavy rainfall, floods, hurricanes and drought. In the coming decades, climate change and environmental degradation will very likely lead to more frequent and intense climate extreme events further amplifying loss. As part of the DRR initiatives in Peru, Save the Children has implemented the ‘Safe schools adapted to climate change’ programme, which focused on reducing the impacts of extreme climatic phenomena on children’s health and on the livelihoods of vulnerable communities.
