A recent UNICEF report warns that millions of children could face displacement in the coming decades due to increasingly frequent extreme weather events.
The analysis revealed that in the past six years, 43.1 million child displacements, equivalent to 20,000 per day, were linked to weather-related disasters.
Flooding and storms were the primary drivers of displacement, with children in the Philippines, India, and China being the most affected.
Droughts accounted for over 1.3 million displacements across 15 countries, with Somalia, Ethiopia, and Afghanistan bearing the brunt.
Wildfires were the third-largest cause of child displacement globally, with the United States, Canada, and Israel reporting the highest numbers of affected children, despite their robust early warning and disaster risk reduction systems.
