ITU launched the Child Online Protection (COP) Initiative in November 2008 as a multi-stakeholder effort within the Global Cyber security Agenda (GCA) framework. The initiative brings together partners from all sectors of the global community to create a safe and empowering secure online experience for children around the world. Uganda through UCC in partnership with ITU is implementing this COP initiative.
COP main objectives are as follows:
•Identification of risks and vulnerabilities to children in cyberspace
•Creation of awareness among policymakers, industry, parents and educators as well as the children
•Development of practical tools to help minimize risk
•Sharing knowledge and experience
