Time heals all wounds but one family finds time wasn’t on their side. This video highlights how a small family is impacted by the changing climate over the course of three generations. Children are the most vulnerable, yet least responsible for the effects of climate change.
More than half a billion children live in areas with extremely high flood occurrence and 160 million in high drought severity zones, leaving them highly exposed. Climate change means more droughts, floods, heatwaves and other severe weather conditions. These events can ripple throughout a child’s life and limit on their access to sanitation, education and opportunities.
