This October 2019 report, created by participants of the Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development’s Working Group on Child Online Safety, addresses what a safer online environment looks like, the state of children online today, opportunities to improve, and threats and the threat environment. The WG was tasked with creating a report that would bring together the available evidence on the scale
and nature of the risks and harms children face online and provide actionable recommendations for the prioritization of children’s online safety. Broadband connectivity is a key enabler for children’s future. It helps to fuel the achievement of all the Sustainable Development Goals and to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to thrive, so that no child is left behind. The Internet has already  transformed our lives at an unprecedented pace and scale.
