Child Friendly Cities and Communities Assessment Toolkit

The lessons learned from the field assessment of 2009-2010 are incorporated into this final toolkit. The assessment process outlined in this toolkit enables the collection of community level data on a broad range of child rights and can be used for the following purposes:

 

  • Community use. Data can be collected and analysed by community residents to identify priority areas for action to enhance living conditions for children. The findings from this assessment can then be used by community residents for advocacy purposes with local authorities or as a guide for their own direct actions to improve their community. Data can subsequently be collected using the same tools by a community for periodic monitoring of progress with regard to the living conditions of children.
  • Municipal use. The methodology and tools are also valuable for providing municipal government decision-makers with more fine-tuned data, and on a much greater range of dimensions than is typically available for city-level planning for children. While the process for using the tools focuses on the community-level collection of data, this guide also discusses the different ways that municipalities could use the tools for citywide data collection.
