    • Are there specific groups that are more vulnerable to the risks posed by climate change and their on-going access/quality to education?

    • Is the problem recognised and acknowledged?

    • Are their mitigation and adaptation actions already being applied?

      • Is Climate Change included within core curriculum taught within schools?

    • What are the gaps, vis-à-vis levels of knowledge, policy, functions of the system supporting policy action and infrastructure?
