- Facilitating the Asia-Pacific Financial Coalition Against Child Sexual Exploitation (APFC), bringing together representatives from the financial and technology industries along with members of the law enforcement community to fight online child sexual exploitation.
- Establishing and supporting Online Child Sexual Exploitation Stand-Alone Police Units (OCSE-SAPU) across five states in India including Kerala.
- Supporting the development and strengthening of laws, treaties and systems to protect children in the region.Learn more about recommendations for legislative improvements in the Philippines which were recently signed into law.
