EPA has developed a national-scale, multi-sector report which quantifies projected health effects to children from climate change. The report considers factors such as extreme heat, air quality, changing seasons, flooding, and infectious diseases. Where possible, the analyses consider the extent to which these risks disproportionately fall on children from overburdened populations.

This page contains the report as a downloadable PDF.
