Cities and urban contexts face specific fragility challenges. Plan International is committed to investing in and implementing programmes that work towards the New Urban Agenda’s goals and seek to achieve inclusive, sustainable and equitable cities.
Our Urban Hub has been established to further this aim. The Urban Hub works across all Plan International offices, including thematic focus areas and Centres of Excellence, to harness evidence and learning from urban programming. The hub has commissioned the Urban Research Series, with support from Plan International Denmark. Using the learning featured here, we aim to build a community of practice that strives for responsible, gender-transformative and sustainable urbanisation and urban development, for all children and young people.
Please download the brief below to find out how Plan International uses gender-transformative programming to tackle violence and empower urban youth. The brief outlines programming approaches used by two of Plan’s urban programmes: Safe and Inclusive Cities and Safer Cities for Girls.
