Technical Guidance Resource on Online Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse

Child Helpline International and ICMEC proudly launch their Technical Guidance Resource on Online Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse, as part of their Advocate, Collaborate & Train to End Violence Against Children (ACT to EVAC) project. This Technical Guidance Resource is a compilation of key findings from Jordan, Kenya, Peru, the Philippines and Tanzania.

“Technology empowers billions of people to connect and explore the world in ways that previously were unimagineable. However, there are unforeseen consequences of technology, too, which can put children and young people at risk.”

Since 2018, Child Helpline International and the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC) have partnered to support five target countries in implementing a collaborative approach to combat online child sexual exploitation and abuse (OCSEA). This includes, but is not limited to, the following activities:

We are delighted to announce the launch of our Technical Guidance Resource on OCSEA!

Objective: It is our aim that such a resource will encourage continued cross-cutting stakeholder collaboration and interaction at the national level, particularly among child helplines, healthcare, education, law enforcement, and civil society organizations.

Methodology: A survey was created with specific questions for each of our targeted stakeholder groups who previously took part in our five national roundtable discussions, which took place throughout 2019.

Impact: Ultimately, this resource aims to ensure legal and judicial systems are strengthened in relation to online violence, more specifically, OCSEA. We hope to identify possible further partnerships and opportunities between stakeholders and countries through this survey.
