A Child Rights and Equity-Based Assessment of the Impact of Global Climate Change on Children’s Health and Well-Being (pp. 541-551) $45.00
Authors:  Jeffrey Goldhagen
Abstract:
It is virtually certain that global climate change and its
impact on the health and well-being of children will
intensify. Human rights and equity-based analysis of the
effects of climate change provide a unique and strategic
approach to understand its complexities and to respond. The
UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)
provides a framework for this inquiry. Objective: To
develop a collection of rights and equity-based tools that
can be used to analyze and address the current and
projected impact of climate change on children’s health and
well-being. Method: An ontological process is used to
categorize and link the articles of the UNCRC to factors
related to the pathways, outcomes impact,and ethics of
climate change on children. Results: UNCRC articles are
categorized into five matrices that relate the impact of
climate change to: a) economic, cultural, social, protective
and civil-political rights, b) Protection, Provision and
Participation rights, c) pathways and outcomes of climate
change and related rights, d) prevention, intervention and
mitigation strategies related to children’s physical,
behavioral and social health and relevant child health needs
and rights, and e) UNCRC articles and ethics principles.
Conclusions: The principles of children’s rights provide
the tools required to understand and respond to the effects
of climate change on the health and well-being of children.
The UNCRC is a universally accepted framework to
support these efforts. It is through the fulfillment of
children’s rights that child health equity can be achieved in
the face of global climate change.
