Climate change has truly devastating effects on children around the world. Disasters like floods and droughts can damage homes and schools, cause psychological trauma, and lead to food shortages, hunger and malnutrition.
Climate change was not created by children – yet it is children who are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change disasters. Future generations will suffer at the hands of our worsening and hostile climate.
You can make a difference
This year UNICEF UK campaigners are continuing their hard work on climate change for the world's children. We will be keeping up the pressure on the UK Government to recognise the devastating consequences climate change has on children. To find out about how you can help, please sign up for email updates.
Climate change means millions of children go to bed hungry. It shouldn't be like this. As part of the Enough Food IF campaign, thousands of people called on the UK Government to fix the broken food system and stop children going to bed hungry because of the impacts of climate change.
Thank you also to everyone who sent a tweet to Justine Greening or commented on Facebook about protecting children from climate change and hunger. DFID responded highlighting the impact of climate change on children.
