ECPAT International works to make a reality of the Stockholm Agenda for Action against the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC). The Agenda was adopted by 122 countries at the First World Congress against CSEC in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1996.
We follow what governments are doing and have done to combat CSEC, and we publish the results. We explore good models for prevention work and share those models and experiences. We find and develop training modules to help caregivers to do their work better. We develop learning tools for police training curricula. We provide advice and information to groups who are trying to make a national plan for their country or implement an existing plan. We carry out research and develop research methodologies. We promote the participation of young people in seeking solutions to the problems and in providing support to victims.
The tools and information that you will find throughout the ECPAT programmes are intended to help non-governmental organisations, individuals, caregivers, legislators and all those who are trying to combat child prostitution, child pornography and trafficking of children for sexual purposes.
