Executive Summary

This alternative report was coordinated by ECPAT Philippines and endorsed by the Philippines NGO Coalition. There were many contributors to the report from interested non-government organizations and government departments as well as experts in the field of Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Filipino Child Protection Laws. These individuals, working groups and NGOs kindly submitted for this report in consideration to Article 45 (a) of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and express immense gratitude for the Committee on the Rights of the Child or the recognition of this report.

Part of the information presented in this document is based on the Global Monitoring Reports on the Status of Action Against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children from 2006 and 2011. These documents are produced by ECPAT International in order to provide comprehensive baseline of information on actions taken and remaining gaps for addressing CSEC, based on the framework of the Agenda for Action from the first World Congress against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children.

In the writing of this report the existing information on OPSC concerns were identified and collected. To generate the data on OPSC, ECPAT Philippines utilized various methods to reach well-founded conclusions concerning the areas of the OPSC. It was evident that there were deficits of information. To investigate this, ECPAT Philippines developed a questionnaire, which was sent out to prominent stakeholders in areas of child protection. Some interviews were conducted with selected target persons, which in some way or another deal with one of the three areas of the Optional Protocol. This information was evaluated and discussed internally at ECPAT then verified with the various contributors. The final task was to create recommendations in relation to the information collected to be used as evidence that there needs to be more detailed studies or data collections in the affected areas.
This is the first Alternative NGO Report for the Philippines on the OPSC. The report aims to strengthen and follow up the previous commitment to this protocol. Also the report endeavours to evaluate the measures taken by the Philippine Government since participating and affirming its commitments to the 2008 Brazil World Congress III on the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children. The authors of this report hope to make a contribution to the evaluation of the measures taken by the Philippines Government in these areas of minimizing CSEC.
