COP Guidelines

In line with the global movement launched by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to protect children online, the BtCIRT collaborated with ITU and UNICEF Bhutan to adapt the ITU’s COP guidelines 2020 with due consideration of the context of existing COP efforts and COP gaps in Bhutan. As a part of the localization efforts, a series of Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) on child online protection with the five key stakeholder groups - children, parents, educators, industry representatives, and policymakers were carried out and the findings were integrated with the COP guidelines to strengthen policy and regulatory measures to ensure children’s rights are protected in the digital space. The inputs from the COP task force consisting of representatives from key stakeholders have also been integrated into the guidelines. The guidelines are very prescriptive and outline the necessary steps that the respective COP targets; Parents & Educators, Policy Makers, and Industry should take to help children to be safe online and to ensure that they are adequately protected.
