Under this initiative, a CFSC hub has been created at the NIUA to promote knowledge driven, advanced and effective child friendly urban planning frameworks that will include children's perspectives and encourage children's participation in the planning and management of cities. The CFSC hub will focus on advocacy and policy interventions, and provide technical support to city administrations working towards becoming child-friendly. It will provide overall support and guidance to CFSC centres located in several cities to identify and implement specific projects and help with the training and capacity building of officials and staff of city agencies and urban local bodies. The CFSC Centres in turn will support and supplement urban planning and design capacities of city development agencies.
