AB’s Response

 

AB’s partnership with End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and the Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes (ECPAT) for a Youth Partnership Project in South Asia comes at a crucial time as CSEC is increasing in South Asia and governments and NGOs in the region are increasingly alert to the need to address CSEC and have shown a commitment to help in its eradication.

In Bangladesh, the Government, with input from young people, has designed a National Plan of Action on Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation. It stresses the role of child participation in monitoring and implementation. Several institutions will be informed about the project and partnerships will be developed with government welfare providers and schools, not to mention the intensive liaison envisaged as part of the lobbying activities of the project. While all of these developments are positive steps in the formidable challenge to eliminate CSEC, AB, ECPAT and many others believe that these institutions on their own will not succeed as the task is considerable - they need to be actively supported by NGOs and specialist agencies and importantly the voice of children themselves.

The government ratified the 1989 UNCRC as well as the Optional Protocol on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography. Furthermore it signed the Stockholm Agenda for Action and Declaration in 1996 and re-affirmed its commitment to the principles in 2001. On a regional level Bangladesh has worked together with other South Asian countries to form a network for South Asia called Action Against Trafficking and Exploitation of Children (AATEC), which has chapters in New Delhi and West Bengal. AB advocates for the implementation of the Agenda for Action and actively seeks alliances with existing groups and organisations such as ECPAT, UNICEF, ILO and other UN bodies and governmental agencies and departments.
