The overall purpose of the paper is to provide guidelines for national, and especially local governments in Africa, on the steps which must be taken to empower and meet the needs of urban youth at risk, and to promote community safety and better governance. It is intended for elected city officials, local government administrators and services, as well as others who work at the local level in the public and private sectors. In the context of this paper, empowerment refers to the circumstances and factors which enhance the development of citizenship and productiveness among young people as they move into adulthood. It is concerned with the adaptation of government structures and institutions to protect and deliver children’s, youth and human rights, including the right to participation. Empowering African cities and municipalities and youth themselves will help to build healthy individuals and communities.
