520 3  Children and young people represent 30 per cent of the 
       world's population. Not only do they represent the largest
       group of people currently affected by climate change, but 
       they are also more vulnerable than adults to its harmful 
       effects. Children and young people also constitute the 
       generation that will be required to deal with the future 
       impacts of climate change and that will have to deliver 
       the very deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions that will 
       be essential in the coming decades. This book is an 
       attempt to redress the balance. It brings together the 
       knowledge and opinions of 40 contributors - scientists, 
       development workers, and experts in health, nutrition and 
       children's rights - in an attempt to build up a clear 
       picture of what climate change means for the children of 
       today and tomorrow.
