  1. India has one of the highest instances of CSE.

In December 2001, a farrago of representatives of intergovernmental organizations, nongovernmental organizations, the private sector, and concerned members of the civil society around the world convened in Yokohama, Japan, at the 2nd World Congress against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children with the explicit aim to address the plight of the worlds children involved in one the most appalling informal business: Commercial Sexual Exploitation. Exactly five years after agreeing on the factors contributing to CSE (Child Sex Exploitation) and ways in which to combat it, the meeting in Japan would reaffirm governments' commitments to tackling the issue of CSE. Among some of the considerations of the second convention, according to the 2nd World Congress against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children, are the following: a greater emphasis on the rights of the child; the continual promotion of the rights of children by local governments and international organizations; the espousal and promulgation of a wide array of laws and programmes that protect children; and greater action against child pornography and trafficking of children for the purpose of sex.
