The State of the World’s Children 2012: Executive Summary

Over half the world’s people – including more than a billion children – now live in cities and towns. The State of the World’s Children 2012: Children in an Urban World examines the situation of children growing up in urban settings and finds that denials of children’s rights to survival, health, nutrition, education and protection are widespread. It sheds light on these urban inequities and suggests ways to ensure that urban childhoods are safe, healthy, participatory and fulfilling.
