Assess your child protection risk
No matter where we are in the world, we each have a responsibility towards children, especially in protecting them from exploitation and abuse. The travel and tourism industry has enormous power and potential to help make destinations, services and infrastructure safer for children. This tool is designed to help your business assess and understand its potential risks in relation to child sexual exploitation and trafficking in your industry and take action to protect children.
The risk assessment tool was developed in the framework of the project implemented by ECPAT International with support of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The Corona-Tourism-Package of the German Federal Government aims to retain the structures of the tourism sector and to empower local actors to offer products and services in tourism. In the spirit of "build back better", the aim is also to improve the ecological and social aspects of tourism and to achieve improved resilience.
The measures are closely tailored to the needs of the local people. The entire program addresses 26 countries that are particularly badly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Tanzania, Philippines and Vietnam are among those. Our approach is to support the private sector in identifying the risk and impacts they may have on children’s right to live free from sexual exploitation.This tool is designed to help your business identify, assess likelihood of and understand potential risks in relation to child sexual exploitation and trafficking.
