National response

For national governments, the most urgently needed responses include: 

  • deployment of sophisticated intelligence capabilities to disrupt the most dangerous offender communities
  • improved educational and support resources
  • new legislative and regulatory measures to keep children safer online through robust action to counter illegal content and activity.

See our Model National Response

This document provides guidance and support on the MNR to countries and organisations to help them deliver on this commitment.

Whilst the Model is focused on helping countries to build their response to online child sexual exploitation, it acknowledges that this cannot be addressed in isolation and a wider set of capabilities to prevent and tackle child sexual exploitation and abuse are required to be in place to ensure a complete national response.
