28th Annual KHSMUN Conference

The Impact of Climate Change on Children


"There may be no greater, growing threat facing the world’s children – and their children – than climate change. This mounting global crisis has the potential to undermine many of the gains we have made in child survival and development – and poses even greater dangers ahead."

Anthony Lake, UNICEF Executive Director
