Restarting travel and tourism in Asia with child protection in focus – a webinar organized by the Down to Zero Alliance

Restarting travel and tourism in Asia with child protection in focus (15 July 2020) 

In this webinar, partners representing the Down to Zero Alliance, governments, and the travel & tourism sector in the region took stock of the key challenges, including implications of the pandemic, versus progress made up to date in respect to child protection; to commit, through a joint statement calling for the travel and tourism recovery phase to keep child protection as a primary consideration.

Currently, the Down to Zero Alliance aims to put a stop to this crime in ten countries in Asia and Latin America. The Alliance is a collaboration between Terre des Hommes Netherlands, Defence for Children-ECPAT, ECPAT International, Free a Girl, ICCO and Plan Netherlands, with the support from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

All the participants of the webinar were invited to provide their contribution during a Q&A session and through a survey. The joint statement will be published following the second regional webinar scheduled on 4 August 2020 in Latin America.
