Slum Area


Cities are centers of the greatest human challenges and opportunities. Amidst this unprecedented and transformational urbanization, there is a growing need to address emerging challenges and tap into new opportunities, especially as they relate to vulnerable children and youth. Through the urbanization handbook, UNICEF in partnership with ARM seek to outline opportunities for design, technology and social impact communities to work together in creating technological innovations that improve the lives of vulnerable children in cities. It highlights the urgent need for innovation on behalf of children in the context of a rapidly urbanizing planet, and also offers guidance on specific approaches and principles through the lens of UNICEF’s innovation priorities.
