This framework guides efforts to build urban resilience that support children, youth, girls and boys. It integrates child and human rights into resilient urban development, enabling children to become agents of resilience. Public and private stakeholders can use this guide to assess and adapt current efforts to build resilience; identify opportunities; promote coordination and develop pathways to greater resilience through new initiatives.

The following 12 interventions propose answers to critical questions and suggest action to build the resilience of cities for children, youth, girls and boys:

  1. strengthen basic services for children to access;
  2. assure decent work (where children are involved);
  3. ensure safeguards to health and life of children;
  4. increase community involvement in children's welfare;
  5. prevent crime on or by children;
  6. motivate key stakeholders as champions of children's issues;
  7. design safe spaces;
  8. ensure infrastructure is child sensitive;
  9. provide information in a child-friendly way;
  10. include children in emergency preparedness;
  11. empower children to enable participation;
  12. integrate child and human rights into policies and plans.
