The Child in the City conference is the fourth bi-annual conference of the European Network Child Friendly Cities (EN CFC). During the last decennium this conference has been the place to be for all cities and scientists focussing on the theme of a local child friendly policy. Cities from all over Europe (but also from Canada and Australia, and…) inspired each other by telling about their own experiences and looking for similar cities with similar problems. It is as a market and a lab in which new ideas are developed.

IRC has partnered with DevInfo in the development of the CFC DevInfo assessment and monitoring toolkit. This is designed to help implementing countries automate database management on Child Friendly Cities (CFC). It is based on the CFC assessment toolkit and indicators developed through the CFC research initiative (http://www.childfriendlycities.org/en/research). It comprises: (a) community assessment indicators (derived from the CFC community assessment tools) and (b) CFC objective indicators (derived from other administrative surveys). The toolkit consists of DevInfo templates and Data Capture sheets. The DevInfo templates and Data Capture sheets can be customized and managed by cities or countries that wish to collect data on children's living conditions and child well-being in local settings.
