Emergency Situations, Save The Children Indonesia calls on all parties to take serious action

The “Hope Generation” report also shows that more than 60 million children in Indonesia experience at least one extreme weather event a year. This fact makes it clear that children bear a disproportionate burden, because they grow up in threatening situations and children have factors that make them physically, socially and economically vulnerable.

In Donggala Regency, a father with 7 children, lives on the coast and earns a living as a fisherman who is facing the real challenge of the weather. Fishing is decreasing every day, often they get nothing and this affects the family’s economy, health and education of their seven children.

“The climate problem is a problem of children’s rights. Children face long-term poverty, which greatly affects their rights to education, health and protection. Now is the time to take corrective and mitigation measures to improve the situation and create a better future for children in Indonesia and around the world,” said Troy Pantouw / Head of Advocacy, Campaign, Communication, Media & MarkComm / Save the Children Indonesia.
