The Americas – Overview of Child Protection Standards for Travel and Tourism

by ECPAT International in 2020

Civil society organisations in the Americas have long been working with the travel and tourism sector to protect children from sexual exploitation. An essential tool is codes of conduct that guide all actors in the sector on how to improve their child protection work. In the Americas, national codes of conduct are used, along with the ECPAT hosted initiative The Code, that help meet the international legal standards.

This report analyses how these codes can be streamlined and collectively work to protect every child in the region from all forms of sexual exploitation.
