Weather disasters caused by climate change displaced 43 million children, says UNICEF

  • According to a United Nations report, storms, floods, fires, and other extreme weather events have led to over 43 million displacements involving children between 2016 and 2021. This highlights the urgent need to address the impact of climate change on vulnerable populations.
  • UNICEF estimates that more than 113 million displacements of children will occur in the next three decades due to risks from flooding rivers, cyclonic winds, and storm surges. This underscores the need for immediate action and investment in mitigating the effects of climate change to protect children and their families.
  • The Philippines, India, and China experience the highest number of child displacements by climate hazards, accounting for almost half of the total. These countries, along with others like Vietnam, need targeted interventions and support to address the future displacement crisis caused by climate change.
