Futures at risk: protecting the rights of children on the move in a changing climate
This report, Futures at Risk: Protecting the Rights of Children on the Move in a Changing Climate, examines the impact of climate change-related displacement and migration on children’s access to education and health services. Children, their families and communities around the world have been displaced due to weather-related impacts, which can increase in frequency or be intensified by climate change. In 2020 alone, weather-related events – whether or not climate change-related – were linked to 30.1 million new displacements, including 9.8 million new internal displacements of children. That equates to almost 26,900 new weather related child displacements every day.
