The `Transforming the lives of children affected by climate change` Brochure presents UNICEF`s work on incorporating climate change and environmental education into a child-friendly education curriculum. Compared to adults, children are more susceptible to the negative effects of environmental degradation and more vulnerable to conditions such as poor air quality, contaminated water and extreme heat. Child-friendly education is a means by which children and adolescents can develop the capacity and skills needed to withstand projected climate shocks and natural disasters.
