Unless We Act Now: The impact of climate change on children

Produced by UNICEF, this report aims to build the evidence base on children and climate change by focusing on climate-related risks and how they relate to children, current and future exposure to these risks, and the policies required to protect children from these risks.

Divided into three sections, the first presents the major climate-related risks and their potential impacts on children, from repetitive crisis impact to the influence on disease. The second section looks at different courses of action and their potential impact on children: from a do-nothing approach to ambitious action in addressing climate change. The third and final section outlines broad policy recommendations to prevent further global warming, decrease children’s exposure, and increase children’s resilience to climate change and environmental risks.
