United Nations: Millions of children could be at risk from a series of extreme heat waves in East Asia and the Pacific, and measures are needed to protect them and other vulnerable groups from rising temperatures, the United Nations has said.
According to the report, global warming monitoring organizations say that the year 2024 is going to be the hottest year on record, due to atmospheric intensification and increased greenhouse gas emissions.
According to data provided by the United Nations Children’s Organization (UNICEF), more than 243 million children living in East Asia and the Pacific may be affected by heat waves in the future, putting them at risk of various diseases and death.
The World Agency added that many countries in the region are already experiencing extreme heat, with temperatures exceeding 40 degrees and reaching historic levels, with the trend expected to increase further in the coming weeks.
