Extreme weather displaced 43m children in past six years At least 43 million child displacements were linked to extreme weather events over the past six years, the equivalent of 20,000 children being forced to abandon their homes and school every single day, new research has found. Floods and storms accounted for 95% of recorded child displacement between 2016 and 2021, according to the first-of-its-kind analysis by Unicef and the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC). The rest – more than 2 million children – were displaced by wildfires and drought. https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2023/oct/05/extreme-weather-climate-crisis-displaced-children-unicef-report

          Keeping in mind there's adults displaced by such events as well, these numbers are nothing short of astronomical and it's a shame we're not putting measures in place to curb such occurrences in the future.

              That's very sad... 43 million is similar to the whole Kenyan population.
