Photo of the Week: climate change & children

Climate change and environmental degradation undermine the rights of children and can affect their ability to live in safety, access water and food, and dwell in unpolluted communities.

UNICEF’s commitment to a more sustainable future includes empowering children and youth to become more involved in environmental action.
