Several groups  are joining hands to address concerns on cyber trafficking and other forms of human trafficking in the Philippines, the Netherlands embassy said Monday.

Stakeholders will meet in Iloilo City for the second leg of the 2014 Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) Summit, which is in line with the National Children’s Month this October.

“In this CSO Summit, concerns on cyber trafficking and the youth’s vulnerability to such will be tackled, as well as initiatives to curb online child exploitation,” the embassy said.

The theme for the summit is   #UsingTech2EndChildTrafficking.

The summit runs from October 9 to 10 and is the second forum spearheaded by the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (Iacat), which partnered with global human rights organization International Justice Mission (IJM) and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

“The Netherlands Embassy shares the goals of these three NGOs in anti-human trafficking efforts in the Philippines,” said Joop Scheffers, charge d’ affaires of the embassy.

“The goal of this leg of the summit is to bring together civil society members, technological companies, and student leaders who can work together in combating the exploitation of children,” he said.
