Save the Children – Wales
Save the Children believes that every child has the right to a safe, healthy and happy childhood. In Wales the charity’s focus is on reducing the number of children growing up in poverty and working with others to ensure that all children have the best start in life.
“Children are on the front-line of the climate crisis. We respond every day to emergencies caused by extreme weather events like droughts, floods, and storms – and we see how they impact child malnutrition, poverty, and outbreaks of disease. The world’s response to climate change will decide the prospects not just of millions of children now, but of future generations too.“As the host of COP26, the UK has a huge opportunity and responsibility to bring the world together behind a plan to tackle climate change and support the communities worst affected by it. Unfortunately, cuts to our aid budget will mean less support for children living in countries at the forefront of the climate crisis. Calling on other countries to do more while the UK does less is a dereliction of leadership. That’s why the UK Government must urgently abandon its aid cuts.“We have seen the power of children leading the way on climate change through a global movement. The UK and Welsh governments should listen to the voices in that movement, act with the urgency that children are demanding, and ensure that COP26 produces results.”
