Children uprooted in a changing climate. Turning challenges into opportunities with and for young people
The purpose of this brief is to spark conversation on the critical connection between climate, mobility and childhood – and its implications for policy and investment. By looking at what we know, where the worst impacts of climate change, fragility and conflict overlap, and where child mobility is both a consequence and a coping strategy, we get a clearer picture of how mobility can be leveraged to turn these challenges into opportunities – with and for children and young people uprooted from their homes.
The brief was presented at a pre-COP26 event organized jointly by UNICEF, IOM and UNMGY.
