No Place to Call Home: Protecting children's rights when the changing climate forces them to flee

Children affected by climate change are vulnerable to a range of heightened risks, notably those that result from displacement and migration. Separation, exploitation, and limited access to health and education services are some of the many challenges and risks facing children affected by climate change.

In this report, UNICEF explores climate change and climate-related migration and displacement from a child rights perspective. After a thorough review of risks and challenges facing children under these circumstances, UNICEF puts forth a series of recommendations for on-the-ground action, policy development, and which research gaps need filling.
