WePROTECT and Global Alliance members are signed up to ambitious commitments to end child sexual exploitation online.
The 70 countries involved in these initiatives are working towards a common set of aims, which are to:
- identify victims, and ensure they receive necessary support;
- investigate cases of exploitation and prosecute offenders;
- increase public awareness of the risks posed by children’s activities online, and;
- reduce the availability of child sexual abuse material online.
The WePROTECT Model National Response to Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse helps countries to establish and develop coordinated national responses to online child sexual exploitation. Using the Model, countries can evaluate their current response, identify gaps and prioritise national efforts to address them.
The technology industry and international and civil society organisations have made their own ambitious commitments, including to support this comprehensive national approach, coordinate their efforts and harness the power of innovation to help protect children online.
