Building child-friendly cities: A framework for action
This document provides a framework for defining and developing a Child Friendly City. It identifies the steps to build a local system of governance committed to fulfilling children’s rights. The framework translates the process needed to
implement the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child by national governments into a local government process.
The concept of Child Friendly Cities is equally applicable to governance of all communities which include children – large and small, urban and rural. The framework is intended to provide a foundation for adaptation to suit all localities.
