The Climate Crisis is a Child Rights Crisis:: Introducing the Children’s Climate Risk Index
This report presents the Children’s Climate Risk Index (CCRI). This is the Beta version of the Index, and will continue to be adjusted, modified and new datasets added, including projection analysis, together with partners, including the Data for Children Collaborative and Save the Children International. This Index does not include Small Island Developing States (SIDS) that have a land area less than 20,000sq/km due to data availability limitations. Many SIDS face serious and existential threats due to climate change that are not adequately reflected in the data, and not captured appropriately in a multi-hazard index. As such, they have been not been considered in this edition. Future versions of the Index will aim to address the data requirements for these contexts.
