The Challenge:

Sexual exploitation of children is an intensely complex issue. In Southeast Asia, child sexual exploitation has been closely linked to the ever-growing regional and international tourism industry. Efforts are being made to protect children by countries in Southeast Asia, including through legislative reform, technical capacity building of investigators and prosecutors, and enhanced cross-border cooperation.

What we do:

UNODC is well positioned to continue providing support to Member States, particularly in the area of combating child-sex tourism and providing appropriate protection to victims.
