Challenges and potential solutions for adolescent girls in urban settings: A rapid evidence review

25.07.17 | Bodily integrity and freedom from violence

Authors

Sylvia Chant Martina Klett-Davies Jordana Ramalho

This rapid evidence review explores the vulnerabilities of adolescent girls and young women who are increasingly flocking to cities and urban centres for employment. It reviews efforts to target this cohort and highlights emerging, promising interventions that might help to mitigate the specific risks that urban girls face.

Given the evidence base on urban adolescent experiences is thin, this rapid evidence review aims to outline gaps in existing knowledge on the vulnerabilities and challenges faced by adolescent girls in urban contexts, so as to contribute to evidence-informed programming and policy dialogues and action.
