Urban population is happening fastest in least developed regions.
Because of this change, now, more than ever, there is a greater need for communities and governments to provide for their diverse inhabitants. Vulnerability to disasters, lack of reliable and accurate data and urban health inequities are among the biggest problems faced by city dwellers today.We must re-think the way we measure a citys success. Never mind the buildings and bridges, what are we doing for the people that use them? Urban planning policies and design decisions should be made with the realities of our people at the forefront: creating places that increase resilience and nurture and develop human well-being.
This approach needs to be bottom up (involving communities in decision making and planning processes) andperhaps more importantlytop down, with urban development policies that enable the creation of built environments that work for people, not just cars and businesses. How can we do this? By 1) better, more accurate data 2) planning solutions with, not just for, communities and 3) Getting the private sector to invest in people-centred design solutions.
INDEX CONSTRUCTIONThe UKID Index is composed of standardized disaggregated data from a number of GCIF indicators that assess the following four key categories for children:
A good start to life;Protection from harm;Education and knowledge; andStandard of living
PILOT CITIESPreliminary results are presented for seven GCIF member cities from Africa, Asia, Latin America and North Africa-West Asia that were part of the UKID pilot project.
Key Strengths of Index:
Enables global comparability;
Complimentary to existing country-based accreditation and monitoring systems;
Results-led framework for cities without existing CFC initiatives;
Opportunity for city-to-city collaboration and peer learning;
Cities can be scored individually for each of the six sub-indices allowing for identification of areas for focused support;
Strengthens and expands city and mayoral networks;
Potential for neighbourhood-level urban data and improved tracking and measurement of city progress;
When used alongside qualitative CFC targets, provides holistic, comprehensive picture of the opportunities afforded to children in a given community;
Opportunity to strengthen collaboration with National Comittees.
