The Environment

Many children suffer as climate change causes more droughts, floods, heatwaves and other extreme weather conditions.

Children may die and become injured, but natural disasters can also increase food shortages and clean water. It can also increase the spread of diarrhea and malaria, which severely affect children. Already, about 7 million children are estimated to be fleeing due to extreme weather and natural disasters such as floods. In addition, circa half a million children under the age of five die annually from pollution and far more suffer damage to their lungs.
