ChildrenÂ’s Climate Risk Index

ChildrenÂ’s Climate Risk Index is a new UNICEF report that assesses the childrenÂ’s vulnerability to the climate crisis. The report warned of the adverse socio-economic consequences of climate crisis on children and women.
The report identified India is one of the 33 “extremely high risk” countries where children are at most risk of climate change affecting their health and education. It is one of the four South Asian nations where children would face the most adverse impacts of climate change. The “extremely high risk” countries together contribute to just 9% of the global emissions, while 10 highest emitting countries together account for nearly 70% of the emissions.
