Through Their Eyes: Climate change and economic inequality in the MENA region
06 November 2022
UNFPA, Save the Children and UN ESCWA joined together to hold a Regional Hearing on Climate Change and Economic Inequality in the MENA and Arab region, speaking together with 44 children and adolescents from 12 countries, including Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
This booklet aims to support young people's participation in climate action and decision-making, and to raise the voices of the children and adolescents we spoke with to decision-makers. It highlights what children and adolescents told us about their experiences, the climate action work they are already leading on, the support they request from decision-makers, and their recommendations for furthering climate action in the region.
