Abstract: This issue of Southasiadisasters.net is titled 'Making Smart Cities Safe: Cities, Children and Risk'. According to various estimates, there are 158 million children in the country, about 26% i.e. 41 million live in urban areas and 8 million of them in slums. Hitherto, urban planning in India has not been very responsive to the safety and development needs of children. This issue of Southasiadisasters.net highlights the necessity to make such needs of children intrinsic to the design of these safe cities.
