Climate Induced Movement of People – Ensuring a Human Rights Based Approach

Children are disproportionately impacted by climate change due to their unique metabolism, physiology and developmental needs says the Analytical Study of the OHCHR on climate change and the rights of the child (A/HRC/35/13).

To protect these rights, climate policies and data collection must integrate children rights considerations and that states must ensure that children are effectively empowered to contribute to climate policy and action. This side event, co-organised by the Geneva Climate Change Consultation Group,  aimed to take stock of what has been accomplished during this year on the impact of climate change on the rights of the child and to exchange views on next steps.
