Pediatric societies’ declaration on responding to the impact of climate change on children

In 2020 the International Society for Social Pediatrics and Child Health identified the need to rally pediatricians and child health professionals from around the world to address the climate crisis because of its adverse effects on child health. In response, a declaration on responding to the impact of climate change on children was drafted by the International Society for Social Pediatrics and Child Health and subsequently revised and adopted by the International Pediatric Association.
