DOS/PRMAFAfrican UnionIOM XX   This new project was developed by the IOM/HQ/CT Unit in response to the needs and requests of African countries. The African Union (AU) has sought to lay a foundation for building sustainable migration capacity within the Regional Economic Communities (RECs). The Migration Policy Framework adopted in July 2006 states that comprehensive and balanced approaches to migration must be formulated. The AU also emphasized the need for greater capacity building in the area of migration management including trafficking in persons. This project responds to this request through a technical workshop that will address the key elements towards effectively combating trafficking in persons in the continent and will culminate in the AU-led launch of the “Stop Trafficking” campaign in collaboration with all the Communities. The outcome of the workshop led by the AU will be a set of concrete recommendations that will be incorporated into future plans at the level of the RECs. This project also complements the on-going efforts the Migration Dialogue for West Africa (MIDWA), the Migration Dialogue for Southern Africa (MIDSA), the Inter Governmental Authority on Development-Regional Consultative Process (IGAD), and the EU-Africa Dialogue on migration.$79,9311MRA - Supplemental2008
