UNICEF USA Director of Advocacy and Engagement, Danielle Goldberg and CFCI Technical Expert, Dr. Pamela Wridt will host two webinars on conducting a situation analysis and developing an action plan.
Thursday November 14, 4 pm - 6 pm
The local situation analysis is one of the first activities undertaken by all stakeholders in a Child Friendly City Initiative (CFCI). The situation analysis is envisaged as a deliberative democratic process with the overall aim of building a movement in the United States that puts children first. The situation analysis is the basis for CFCI action planning, and for monitoring and evaluating changes in child well-being over time. The process for implementing the situation analysis is as important as the data it generates. The most transformative approach occurs when young people and decision makers work together on the situation analysis to critically examine the extent to which children’s rights are realized on a local level.
Thursday December 12, 4 pm - 6 pm
The CFCI Local Plan of Action for Children represents a vision for children and young people in their cities and communities. It is based upon the results of the local situation analysis and integrates the government and community assessment data to determine priorities and strategies for improving the well-being of all children and young people. The plan is developed through collaborative and intergenerational planning workshop(s), involving decision makers and representatives of children, young people, their parents and service providers from across the city.
