Time to Act: African children in the climate change | Spotlight

Some of the severe effects of climate change are felt in Africa, a continent which has historically contributed minimally to global carbon emissions. Adverse climate changes are causing significant damages
on ecosystems and people, with the most vulnerable communities, particularly children, disproportionately affected.

This spotlight provides an overview of the impact of climate change on children in Africa, highlights solutions being implemented on the continent, and calls on world leaders and key stakeholders to act for children through key recommendations.
