The Child-Centred Urban Resilience Framework (CCURF) was developed to assist the work of child-centred organisations to build resilience in cities in support of children. The CCURF is guided by urban systems thinking and aligns child and human rights and gender-sensitive approaches with urban development and promotes children as agents of resilience. The CCURF sets out four strategic action areas:
- Sustaining life for children by improving access to basic services, ensuring decent work and safeguarding survival and development.
- Mobilising the community to value the protection and promotion of child and human rights through increased security and protection (especially for girls) and calling for community and stakeholder involvement.
- Making safe places where children can live, play and grow by providing child- and gender-sensitive infrastructure as well as information that children can access.
- Promoting integration so that managing and planning cities is responsive to and inclusive of children.
