III World Congress Against Sexual Exploitation of Children and Adolescents - Rio de Janeiro
More than 3,000 participants comprised of governments, civil society, international organisations, private sector, children and young people are expected to attend this global forum from the 25-28 November 2008, convened to map out the actions that have to be taken to combat the sexual exploitation of children.
The Government of Brazil, UNICEF, ECPAT International, and the NGO Group for the Convention on the Rights of the Child – and partners believe that the World Congress III is an important opportunity to renew global commitment, and to galvanise international will and support to combat sexual exploitation of children and adolescents.
The World Congress III is an important opportunity to renew global commitment to combating sexual exploitation of children and to galvanize international will and support for the concrete action required to guarantee the right of children and adolescents to be protected from sexual exploitation. The Congress will also provide an opportunity to assess progress and review emerging trends in order to adjust and refine the conceptual and practical tools that will be used to combat the commercial sexual exploitation of children at the global level, as well as define measurable targets that can be achieved through a more empathic focused and concerted effort.
Time and place:Nov 25, 2008 - Nov 28, 2008, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
