Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century – and overwhelmingly children will be most affected. It poses severe threats to child survival and wellbeing, food security and nutrition, as well as children’s access to education and protection. As a children’s rights organisation working with children and communities across the world, Save the Children, among others, is pushing for a binding treaty to halt climate change before it’s too late, and is calling for the voices and experiences of children to be at the heart of the debate. Published for the 2010 climate change conference in Cancun, this briefing makes a series of recommendations to policy-makers to uphold children’s rights now and for the future.
