Descriptif
Climate change has become one of the most discussed and researched subjects in recent years. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2007) has stated that most developing countries, like India, are at risk to climate variability in the future because majority of the population depend on natural resources for livelihood. Agriculture, being one of the predominant sectors in Indian economy, will face severe challenges due to climate change. This research analyzes and examines two important aspects : first, how climate change impacts the lives of farmers’ children in rural areas of Gujarat and Jharkhand states in India which have been experiencing recurrent droughts in the recent past. Second, if children’s lives are affected due to decreased livelihoods of their parents, then the question is to what extent this process deprives their rights and whether or not a child centred approach would bring about a potential response in terms of effective action towards climate change adaptation and mitigation

Mots clés : Climate change, Child rights, agricultural farmers, India (Gujarat and Jharkhand)
