For children, climate-related forced displacement places their lives, health, education and well-being at risk.

This child alert takes stock of the link between a changing climate, extreme weather events and forced displacement of children and families in the Caribbean SIDS. It also outlines child-sensitive actions under way to protect children and families. Finally, it calls on governments to take steps to help communities prepare and recover from catastrophic storms and protect children displaced by disasters related to climate change.
