The Ripple Effect: Climate change and children’s access to water and sanitation

About

Water, sanitation and hygiene are the foundations of child survival and development. But the world is facing a water crisis, and climate change is making this crisis worse. Climate change is affecting our ability to reach children with water and sanitation. The lives of millions of children are at risk. To help protect children now and in the future, we must address climate change, and water and sanitation as a whole. We need to work with communities to build climate resilient water and sanitation infrastructure and behaviors. We need innovative solutions to keep water flowing. And we need to put the most vulnerable children first. Only then can we create a brighter future for every child.
