Child Online Protection (COP) workshop 22-26 Sept 2014

Vanuatu is experiencing tides of dramatic change associated with the spread and use of information and communication technologies (ICT). ICT offers unprecedented opportunities for economic growth and social development for small developing countries including Vanuatu.

The Internet has changed the way people work, learn, play and communicate. Children and young people today live in an information society that offers, with just click of a mouse away, an instant digital world where an unprecedented level of services and information is accessible on the internet through a computer or a mobile device.

For the first time in Vanuatu and in this region, an attempt is being planned to educate, create and provide an overall framework for stakeholders related to COP education, statistical analysis or indicators related to measuring COP and developing an appropriate way forward.
