Latest Edition of Research Watch - Climate Change and Children

From droughts to flash floods, failing crops and increased disease, the earth’s climate is changing. In what ways are children most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, and how are they being affected? This edition of Research Watch looks at the science, the politics, the impact, and the next generation and asks what actions on climate change will most benefit children and young people and how we can bring youth into the climate change debate. 


Watch the debate online:

Taking part in the debate: the Head of Climate Change, at ODI, Dr Tom Mitchell; Professor Saleem Ul Huq, the Senior Fellow in the Climate Change Group at the International Institute for Environment and Development; and Ms Esther Agbarakwe, head of the Nigerian youth climate coalition.
