Creating Livable Cities for All Ages: Intergenerational Strategies and Initiatives  
High-income countries at present tend to have relatively large and growing aging populations. Conversely, in most low-income countries children and youth account for very large proportions of the population. Notwithstanding these divergent demographic situations, current and projected changes in the composition and distribution of population in high- and low-income countries alike provide opportunities for strengthening weakened social safety nets, promoting economic sustainability, and improving social integration in cities by adopting development strategies that support intergenerational initiatives.

Global Partnership Initiative  
The greatest threat youth face today is exclusion and marginalization from decisions that affect them. Unemployment, crime, HIV/AIDS, neglect by the authorities and often abandonment to their fate because of various forms of discrimination top the list of problems young people face in African towns and cities. At the same time, urban youth in developing countries possess immense potential to contribute to social development if afforded the right opportunities. The challenge of putting youth at the centre of development strategies can be compared to the challenge, two decades ago, of putting women and gender issues on the development agenda. It is no longer conceivable that problems of developing countries can be resolved without focusing on the role of women. A similar paradigm shift is required with respect to youth in development

Moonbeam Brochure November 2008  
The United Nations World Youth Report 2007 states that youth make up 25 per cent of the global working-age population, but account for 43.7 per cent of the unemployed. In the Africa region, 27 percent of youth are neither in school nor at work, a situation the report stresses can lead to frustration, delinquency and social exclusion.

The Urban Penalty: The Poor Die Young  
The five illnesses that cause more than half of the deaths amongst children are pneumonia, diarrhoea, malaria, measles and HIV/AIDS. Studies indicate that the prevalence of these killer diseases in urban slums is due to bad living conditions rather than income levels. For instance, municipal supplies of safe drinking water rarely penetrate slums. It is common for pit latrines to be shared by thousands of people.
