Safe, Inclusive, Resilient and Child-friendly City: To Accelerate Outcomes for Children in Kolkata

ACE is supported by UNICEF India in developing an Adolescent Policy for Kolkata while upholding the principles of the New Urban Agenda which promotes Safe, Inclusive and Resilient Cities for All.

Ward 26 has been designated for the pilot and for mapping of vulnerabilities and resilience of urban poor communities with the participation of local partners, children, adolescents and the community. Mapping of the city-level structures, policies and projects will also inform the program and help formulate the city-level adolescent policy in coordination with the Kolkata Municipal Corporation and ward level governance structures. A plan of action at the ward level will also be developed to accelerate outcomes for adolescents from a convergent perspective.
