Climate change, energy access and environmental degradation are equity issues, with children and young people often being the most vulnerable and affected. Addressing climate change, energy access and environmental degradation is therefore vital for building a more sustainable future for children. There are major implications of climate change, lack of energy access and environmental degradation for children in Rwanda, and UNICEF has strong potential to strengthen the response to these issues.

OneWorld conducted a Climate Landscape Analysis for Children (CLAC) and Action Plan, examining the baseline situation of climate, energy and environment-related issues affecting children and how they relate to UNICEF’s priorities. The report looked at stakeholders, government policies and relevant programmes in Rwanda. It also provided recommendations on how UNICEF Rwanda could further incorporate and strengthen work on climate, energy and environment-related issues in its current country programme and made recommendations for the new Country Programme Document 2024-2029 around Climate Change, its impact on Children and Rwanda Country Office’s response to it.
