It Is Getting Hot: Call for Education Systems to Respond to the Climate Crisis

Climate change poses a serious risk to children's education in the East Asia and Pacific region, potentially undoing significant gains made in advancing children education and learning over the years, if action is not taken. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is calling for urgent actions to ‘climate-proof’ the education sector and to accelerate climate-resilient and climate-smart education investments and actions.

Analysing the impacts of climate change on the education sector in the region, this report identifies key strategies that can be implemented to manage climate risks to education systems, with case studies from Cambodia, Mongolia and Viet Nam.
