Advancing innovative policy solutions for a healthier planet for children
A sustainable world and sustainable development are not possible without consideration of the environment. Yet while a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment is necessary for the full enjoyment of a wide range of human rights – health, food, water, sanitation – climate change and environmental degradation are destroying the environment, affecting human health and well-being.
No group is more vulnerable to this environmental damage than children. Climate change and the loss of biodiversity threaten to cause long-term effects that will impact children’s lives for years to come. What policy shifts and innovative approaches are needed to address the current and future effects of worsening climate and environmental issues on children?
In collaboration with internal and external partners, we explore new and innovative ways to address the impact of the environment on children.
