African children exceptionally vulnerable to climate change, UN says

  • Children in Africa are disproportionately affected by climate change and are neglected by climate funding, according to the United Nations. UNICEF states that children in 48 out of 49 assessed countries are at high risk, with those in Nigeria, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Chad, Central African Republic, and Somalia being most vulnerable. Limited global funding, less than 3%, is directed toward children, and UNICEF calls for increased funding from the private sector.
  • The UNICEF report precedes the Africa Climate Summit in Nairobi, aiming to highlight Africa's potential in green energy. The summit comes ahead of crucial UN talks and addresses the urgent need to reduce carbon emissions.
  • The conference, opening on Monday, will discuss conflicting visions for energy and the impact of extreme weather events. It aims to push for more focused funding and solutions to help African children adapt and respond to climate-induced challenges.
