Veronica Reeves has more.
Katy Perry is not only a massive pop star and Goodwill Ambassador, but in the new video released by UNICEF, she's also a climate change
"Over the Pacific, in the Philippines, we've seen more devastating tropical cyclone patterns emerging, while further west in Bangladesh, millions of children and families have lost their homes to flooding; because it's always children to suffer first from its impact. Over in East Africa, climate change is helping to spread mosquitos and malaria, which already kills 800 children every day. And the forecast is – conditions will worsen. So, please join me and UNICEF to change the forecast for children."
The video is part of UNICEF's so-called "fight/unfair" campaign, aimed at bringing greater attention to the hardships children face as a result of climate change.
In a new report, UNICEF says more than half a billion children live in areas with extremely high flood occurrence and 160 million live in high drought severity areas.
