Environment

The challenges of climate change: children on the front line.

Innocenti insight
Corporate Author:
UNICEF. Office of Research.

Children are among the greatest victims of a warming world, but they are also the most powerful protagonists for change. In the midst of global debates, differing opinions, scientific facts and climatic uncertainties, this book seeks to apply children's perspectives, viewing the future from their position, and weighing the possibilities for changing lifestyles and mitigating the now inevitable effects and impacts. The rights of children, intergenerational justice and inequality are the central issues emerging from these contributions by 40 experts - scientists, development workers, and specialists in health, nutrition and children's rights. Together they present the best knowledge from the climate change debate, and firmly place the accent on future generations and humanity's responsibilities today.
