ABOUT THE REPORT
The Climate Crisis is a Child Rights Crisis: Introducing the Children’s Climate Risk Index is the first comprehensive analysis of climate risk from a child’s perspective. It ranks countries based on children’s exposure to climate and environmental shocks, such as cyclones and heatwaves, as well as their vulnerability to those shocks, based on their access to essential services.
It was developed in collaboration with several partners including the Data for Children Collaborative in Edinburgh – www.dataforchildrencollaborative.com
In order to make the report more accessible to global youth, UNICEF also collaborated with Climate Cardinals, an international youth-led non-profit organisation that translates climate change research and information so that they can reach as many young people and leaders as possible.
