Neha Sakka, Electrical Engineer with RSEB Udaipur, successfully completed the specialized module training on Children and Climate Change by UNICEF, (United Nations Children’s Education Fund), a United Nations agency responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide, UNICEF provided a specialized training on “Children and Climate Change” under The One UN Climate Change Learning Partnership. The training was provided by United Nations Institute for Training and Research.
The program focused on “child-centered approach”.
A child-centered approach to adaptation recognises that children are much more than passive victims of climate change: they are powerful agents of change. Furthermore, given that children need and capacities differ across age, gender, geography and socio-economic status, child-centered adaptation ensures that all children are able to meaningfully participate in the adaptation process and no one is left behind. There are two aspects of child-centered adaptation: adaptation for children, where the capacity of caregivers to focus on children’s needs and capacities is enhanced; and adaptation with children, where children are centrally involved in the decision-making, planning and implementation of adaptation at all levels.
"Climate Change is one of the deadliest acid corroding our little giant blue marble. Even though “flat earthers” would completely deny the happening of CLIMATE CHANGE, it surely exist and does exist with severe floods and draughts, mountain fire and tsunami, temperature rise and fall in the world. Eventually, sooner or later every being on the planet is going to be impacted, the most vulnerable victims are children", said Neha.
