The Prospects for Children in 2022: a Global Outlook is a UNICEF report that provides an in-depth analysis of trends and events impacting the rights and wellbeing of children across the globe. The report produces an outlook assessment on child wellbeing for the year 2022, analyzing key trends and their implications for children, including the trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic, political instability and conflict, growth of the digital economy, and the globalization of climate policies. The report finds that inequities brought on by the COVID-19 crisis, such as school closures, access to treatment, and learning losses, present growing challenges for children across the globe, and predict record global humanitarian needs in 2022, as the impacts of climate change increase. The report provides data and figures for each global trend impacting children and offers insight into the current state of child wellbeing, the implications, and mitigation strategies for ensuring wellbeing and survival for children in the future.
