Governments create and implement the legal environment to prevent and respond to child sexual exploitation and abuse online. Countries work together through the WeProtect Global Alliance to ensure they are following the latest and best advice.

Through the Model National Response, governments and other members can check they are taking all the steps needed to protect children online.

National law enforcement authorities are responsible for investigating crimes and enforcing the laws.

At the 2022 Global Summit, we established a Global Taskforce on on child sexual abuse online, including the European Union (chair), the African Union (vice-chair) and twenty governments from around the world. The taskforce aims to promote improved cooperation and collaboration among governments and ensure there are no safe havens for the facilitation or hosting of child sexual abuse online.
