Southern Africa: Review of Human Trafficking Programme
The Policy Practice provided a staff member (Alex Duncan) as team leader of a three-person team to review the first phase of the Southern Africa Counter-Trafficking Programme (SACTAP I), and, subject to the review, to appraise a SACTAP II. The programme which is funded by the Norwegian Government, and implemented by the International Organisation for Migration, had made a good start, and a second phase is now under way. SACTAP is now in its second phase after successfully implementing its two year pilot programme. The programme operates in six countries in the SADC region with a range of activities, including continued research, information dissemination, institutional capacity building, and victim assistance and rehabilitation.
