Hitting Rock Bottom: How 2016 Became the Worst Year for Syria's Children

No child is spared the horror of the war in Syria, where children come under attack on a daily basis. Violence is everywhere, ripping apart places that children thought were safe -- places that should be safe: schools, hospitals, playgrounds, public parks and children’s own homes.

Children have paid the heaviest price in this six-year war and their suffering hit rock bottom last year in a drastic escalation of violence.

Child Friendly Cities Catalogue


UNICEF Turkey has implemented a Child Friendly Cities Project together with 10 municipalities with the financial support of IKEA Turkey and the UNICEF Turkish National Committee in order to support the municipalities in their efforts to design child friendly policies and programmes. In order to ensure collaboration and coordination among the relevant partners, the Turkish Ministry of Interior Local Administrations Directorate General (MoI- LADG), Union of Municipalities of Turkey (UMT) and United Cities and Local Governments Middle East and West Asia Section (UCLG-MEWA) and World Academy for Local Government and Democracy took role in the national coordination of the project. Urbanization in Turkey grows so fast with the growing economy, industrialization and migration from rural to urban. In this dynamic process of change, needs of the children are often ignored or their best interests are not prioritized although children of Turkey composes one third of the overall population. For the realization of children’s rights at the local level, municipalities have a great role to play. Municipalities are the best platforms in which problems can be identified and meet with the solutions with the participation of local people. The key is to make the children active agents of this change.
