23 Feb 2009
Description

The study reviews the implications of climate change for children and future generations, drawing on relevant experiences in different sectors and countries of promoting child rights and well-being. It traces in considerable detail the pathways through which shifts in temperature and precipitation patterns create serious additional barriers to the achievement of the child survival, development and protection goals embraced by the international community.The role of children as vital participants and agents of change emerges as a key theme.

This paper is offered as a contribution to the ongoing reflection and discussion, within and between countries, on strategies and action to respond to climate change.
