The healthy development of children is crucial to any society's well-being. Extreme weather events may disrupt children's education by damaging schools and making it difficult for them to attend classes regularly. These events can also lead to food and water shortages, affecting children's physical health, cognitive development, and emotional well-being. Many studies have examined climate change's impact on child development. However, most of these studies are on children in the United States, and there is significantly less research on children in other parts of the world. This research project will investigate the dangers climate change poses to the next generation of children in developing nations by analyzing data from recent studies. The research will demonstrate the impacts of climate change on child development so that nations can actively work toward solutions.
