The aim of this paper is to present the evidence and analysis necessary to effectively influence advocacy, policy and programme development. The ultimate goal is to provide the opportunity for children and young people to develop to their full potential, both by ensuring that their communities and homes are more capable of withstanding the impacts of climate change and by providing support and encouragement for their participation and contributions to the collective global response. Consideration for the rights and capacities of children within and across all levels of emerging climate policy is, therefore, an imperative.
