Landscape analysis on young people’s engagement in climate change and health in six LMICs in Africa and Asia
The health and well-being of future generations are bound to the fate of the planet. A 4°C warmer world will have catastrophic and wide-ranging effects on social, ecological and economic systems, and impacts will be disproportionately felt in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in the ‘Global South’. In fact, climate change is already having devastating effects across the globe, and the need for transformative climate action is urgent. This research aims to contribute to young people’s engagement efforts for climate change and health action by identifying, mapping, and analysing actors, stakeholders and initiatives relevant to young people’s engagement in six countries facing climate risks and public health challenges –Ethiopia, Kenya, and Senegal in Africa, and Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Vietnam in Asia.
