Down To Zero – Effective Ways to Engage the Private Sector
Guidance for Civil Society Organisations Working on Child Protection
This guidance was developed by the Down to Zero Alliance to support Civil Society Organisations in their engagement with the private sector on child protection. It is a direct response to questions from partners who wanted to learn more about this topic. The guidance is based on the practical experiences of Down to Zero partners, cross-referenced with literature listed at the end.
The Down to Zero Alliance is a collaboration between Terre des Hommes Netherlands (lead), Defence for
Children-ECPAT, Free a Girl, ICCO- Cooperation, Plan International Netherlands and the Dutch Ministry of
Foreign Affairs, with the ambition to end Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) through more than
20 local partners in Asia (India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand) and Latin America (Brazil,
Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Colombia, Nicaragua and Perú).
