The forum was attended by 450+ attendees including senior faith leaders and senior representatives from governments, law enforcement agencies, international organizations, NGOs, civil society and academia, representing more than 50 countries.

Over the course of two days, attendees gained understanding on the risks faced by children in the digital age, the emotional and psychological impact on online sexual abuse and exploitation on children. Experts from various disciplines spoke of the actions that need to be taken by policy makers and faith communities to combat online child sexual abuse and exploitation. Senior leaders from the major faiths of the world issued a call to action to protect the digital dignity of children.

The event concluded with the adoption of the Abu Dhabi declaration on child protection.’
