Africa opens another chapter in Fight against Human Trafficking

On the 24th of March 2010, Africa has launched in Abuja (Nigeria) a new two-pronged campaign to operationalise its four-year old continental instrument to address the challenges of trafficking in persons, particularly women and children through regional workshops and the launching of the African Union’s Initiative against Trafficking (AU.COMMIT) in the Regional Economic Communities (RECs). The latest initiative, a joint programme of the African Union, ECOWAS, the International Organisation on Migration (IOM) and the UN Office for Drugs and Crime (UNODC), would develop a road map for implementing the Ouagadougou Action Plan agreed by the African Union in 2006 (also promoted through the Africa-EU Migration, Mobility and Employment Partnership).
