Act to Adapt: Child Centred Climate Change Adaptation (4CA)

Children’s rights are at the centre of Plan’s climate change work. This includes work on adaptation for children, in delivering child-sensitive adaptation projects, and adaptation with children,which ensures children’s active participation in the design and implementation of adaptation projects.

Plan’s Child Centred Climate Change Adaptation (4CA) program is a three-year project taking place over 2011-2014. It aims to build the awareness of children and their communities about climate change and to empower them to be active participantsin adaptation efforts. This involves the translation of relatively new and complex climate science concepts into real life practice using the tools, techniques and knowledge of local communities.
