Climate Change, Children and Poverty: Engaging children and youth in policy debate and action

In this Poverty Brief published by the Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP) at the University of Bergen, Norway, the authors argue that children and youth, particularly those living in poverty, must be empowered and supported to have their voices heard and to be part of the conversation in planning and action. Including the voices and needs of children, including the poorest and most marginalized, at all levels of decision-making will help create a more sustainable, equitable and resilient society.
