The issue features an overview of child-friendly cities in the Philippines and accounts of girl's and boy's priorities in low income settlements in Johannesberg and among Congolese refugees living in Dar es Salaam. Also included are a review of child-friendly city initiatives around the world, an overview of urban youth in conflict with the law in Africa, and a discussion of how to integrate children and youth into settlement development plans.
