Climate change cause health risk for children

Negative effects of climate change have resulted in health risk of our children. The government should take necessary steps for saving the future generation, said speakers at a programme.     

Over 63% children (1.20 crore) are now at risk due to the effects. Frequent cyclone, flood, untimely rainfall, draught and extreme heatwave caused due to climate change put the children at risk, they said.

They remarked while addressing a national dialogue on climate financing on children at Conference Room of BRAC Centre Inn at Mohakhali in the capital recently.
