The UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) published the report "Displaced Children in a Changing Climate".

The report, published for the first time, includes the number of children displaced from their homes due to floods, storms, forest fires and drought caused by extreme weather events in the 2016-2021 period and projections for the next 30 years.

According to the report, 43.1 million children were displaced in 44 countries around the world in the 2016-2021 period. This number corresponds to 20 thousand children per day.

Looking at population ratios, children living in small island countries such as Dominica and Vanuatu were ranked as the most affected by storms, while children in Somalia and Sudan were ranked as the most affected by floods.

RIVER FLOODING COULD DISPLACE UP TO 96 MILLION CHILDREN IN 30 YEARS

Drought has led to the internal displacement of 1.3 million children, while forest fires have displaced 810,000 children.

Climate data shows that river flooding is likely to displace around 96 million children over the next 30 years, while wind and storms are likely to displace 17.5 million children.

As weather events become more frequent and severe, the number of children displaced over the next 30 years could be higher than previously estimated.
