Project Goal

The analysis has helped us gain a better understanding of both the number of at-risk children, as well as where they are located, so that we can target interventions and advocacy towards addressing those environmental risks and better protecting children. We will not be able to end child deaths without addressing the environmental risks children face.

Business Problem Solved

The project goal has been to identify the environmental risk factors facing children around the world. In order to do this, we identified a variety of environmental risks and calculated the number of children living in those areas, including the degree to which they may be susceptible to multiple, overlapping environmental risks.
