COMMUNIQUE - SECURING THE ONLINE PRESENCE OF THE GHANAIAN CHILD
The key findings from discussions at the event include a recognition that child protection-sensitive legislation must begin to guide internet usage in the country both now and in the future. Additionally, the inclusion of children’s voices in policy-making is critical, and all stakeholders in child online protection must be engaged in national conversation for ensuring it. Finally, the effective implementation of the Cybersecurity Act (2020) is dependent on awareness creation and capacity building among various groups of relevant actors.
These dialogues have renewed PDA’s commitment to contributing to evidence-based research on child protection, creating sustained awareness on the role of all stakeholders in ensuring child online protection, and collaborating with others to empower children to protect themselves online. We hope to attract more partners to achieve these goals.
