Safe and Inclusive Cities: Summary Brief
Author(s): Plan International
This summary brief details the actions and change achieved between 2018 – 2020 of Plan’s Safe and Inclusive Cities Programme.
This programme is based on the key assumption that the drivers of urban fragility in informal settlements are unsafety, unemployment, and limited participation in decision-making, while simultaneously, urban youth-led community based organisations and youth savings networks as well as relevant civil society partners, government authorities, and private sector actors have capacity and creative resources to build on.
By strengthening young peoples’ capacity to collectively address all of the drivers of urban fragility the programme aims to contribute to making cities safer, more economically dynamic and more inclusive for young people.
