Making smart cities safe: cities, children and risk

"According to various estimates, there are 158 million children in the country, about 26% i.e. 41 million live in urban areas and 8 million of them in slums. Hitherto, urban planning in India has not been very responsive to the safety and development needs of children. This issue of Southasiadisasters.net highlights the necessity to make such needs of children intrinsic to the design of these safe cities.

Topical and thought-provoking, this issue of Southasiadisasters.net offers good insights on why and how child-sensitive urban development strategies be included into the idea of a 'Smart City' to transform it into a place that offers safety and security to every child so that he/she may live up to their highest potential."
