Climate Mobility and Children

In order to shine a light on the plight of children on the move and to better understand how children and young people are affected by climate-related migration and displacement, UNICEF and the International Organization for Migration recently hosted a virtual symposium.

Over two days, experts, policy makers and young people from around the world met to discuss and debate pertinent questions, unpack key concepts, propose actions and outline an agenda to ensure that children’s rights and needs are part of the wider debate on climate change.

I designed the summary report (below) of the symposium, as well key background papers and reflections from participants.
