Cities are transforming because of demographic and social changes, inequity and environmental risk. In response, signatories to the New Urban Agenda made commitments focusing on vulnerable urban groups, including children. Child-centred organisations acknowledge they need to respond by increasing efforts to build resilience and align these efforts with global declarations, such as the New Urban Agenda. The Child-Centred Urban Resilience Framework (CCURF) was developed to assist the work of these organisations to build resilience in cities in support of children. The completion of the CCURF coincided with the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, Habitat-III (October 2016) and was launched at Habitat-III by Gillian Bird, Permanent Representative of Australia to the United Nations.
