Activities

The United Nations Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (UNIAP) was established to facilitate a stronger and more co-ordinated response to human trafficking in the Greater Mekong Sub-region. With offices in Cambodia, China, Lao PDR, Burma, Thailand and Vietnam, UNIAP works as a coordinating body to facilitate successful responses by its partners, rather than implementing programs itself.

As a service provider, UNIAP provides a platform for action on trafficking. The approach in supporting and initiating programs and then stepping back as our partners take them forward, ensures that full-scale responses to trafficking are implemented by those best placed to do so. In short, UNIAP facilitates closer, more effective working relationships, and acts as a catalyst for these relationships to translate into action.

UNIAP’s focus:

1. Building the knowledge base on trafficking
2. Supporting action on high priority issues
3. Targeted interventions that respond to identified gaps
4. Strengthening advocacy on the issues of trafficking

Prevention Activities:

  • Organising training with All-China Women’s Federation for Yunnan and Guangxi government officials on labour issues and on trafficking prevention life skills training for women in Yunnan

 Protection Activities:

  • Life skills training for women in Yunnan
  • Offering training to All-China Women's Federation on victim support

 Prosecution Activities:

  • Work with UNIAP Lao PDR to strengthen cross-border police collaboration between China and Lao on issues of cross-border trafficking between the two countries

UNIAP publishes a weekly bilingual E-News digest, as well as a quarterly Chinese-language newsletter.

Third Phase of Project

The third phase of UNIAP (2003 June- 2006 September) was funded by multiple donors including NZAID, SIDA, UNDP RBAP, and the Governments of Norway and Netherlands. An external evaluation of the third phase of the project has been conducted and the recommendation for another three years of the project from October 2006-September 2009, was fully endorsed by the Project Steering Committee in January 2006.

The purpose of UNIAP in Phase 3 will be to build on and further strengthen the regional response to human trafficking among governments, UN and other development partners working in the anti-trafficking sector based on (a) improved cooperation within and between partners, (b) effective targeting of resources and expertise and (c) application/dissemination of the latest in lessons learned in and outside of the GMS.
