Initiating a Child Friendly Culture

Climate and Children

Climate change is rapidly unfolding, the world is already experiencing changes in average temperature, shifts in the seasons and an increasing frequency of extreme weather events and other climate change impacts, affecting lives and livelihoods in all regions. With the adoption of the historic 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change in 2015, world leaders agreed on a vison and blueprint for action for promoting human well-being and lives in dignity for all on a healthy and prosperous planet. With the adoption of the Katowice Climate Package at COP24, the world has entered a new era in our collective efforts to address climate change. Without the achievement of SDG 13, the achievement of all other SDGs will be undermined. Thus, Climate change has increased risks amongst children in terms of survival, development and protection. In order to cope with global challenges of climate change, CN continues developing IEC materials and toolkits for DRR intervention including measurement indicators for the coherent and synergetic action in order to maximize sustainable development and climate co-benefits and scale up levels of ambition towards securing the livelihoods for current and future generations.
