The UNIAP Phase III Final Report presents an account of the work of the UN Inter-Agency Project against Human Trafficking (UNIAP) Phase III, from 2007-2014, which has involved a broad range of interventions against human trafficking with a range of stakeholders from all anti-trafficking sectors. UNIAP operated in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) from 2000, when several UN agencies came together to create the project to facilitate a stronger and more coordinated response to human trafficking in GMS. The overall goal of UNIAP Phase III from 2007 to 2014 was “to make a tangible and sustained impact on human trafficking in the Greater Mekong Sub-Region”. Four key objectives were identified for this purpose: 1) Supporting the GMS governments in the continued development and institutionalization of effective multi-sectorial approaches to combat trafficking; 2) Maximizing the UN’s contribution to the overall anti-trafficking response, including the COMMIT Process; 3) Facilitating optimal allocation and targeting of anti-trafficking resources; and 4) Continuing to play a catalytic role in the anti-trafficking response by identifying and supporting special projects to address new and emerging issues and opportunities.
