Regional COMMIT Task Force Concluded

Keywords: COMMIT,

The latest Regional COMMIT Task Force (TF) meeting took place in Bangkok on 15 and 16 October. The meeting brought together the leadership of the national TFs from each of the 6 COMMIT members (Cambodia, China, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam) and UN-ACT as the COMMIT Secretariat. On the agenda were COMMIT capacity development; engagement with civil society actors; cooperation with ASEAN; monitoring and reporting progress of SPAIV implementation; and 2016 work planning. The meeting welcomed external partners for selected sessions, including the ASEAN Secretariat, IOMX, World Vision and Save the Children. The draft report of the COMMIT capacity assessment and development strategy was discussed with TFs and will be going through a national-level validation process before finalization. The strategy will provide an important resource for UN-ACT and other development partners to identify and coordinate their support to the COMMIT Process going forward. TF representatives committed themselves to engaging NGOs in relevant sessions at COMMIT meetings, both nationally and regionally. The regional CSO platform will be submitting annual reports on their SPAIV implementation to the COMMIT TFs for joint progress monitoring. The COMMIT Youth Forum will be organized nationally and regionally in the lead up to COMMIT Senior Officials Meetings (SOMs). There was agreement to intensify cooperation between COMMIT and ASEAN, especially following the adoption of the ASEAN Convention on Trafficking in Persons (ACTIP). Communication between national focal points for COMMIT and human trafficking affairs in ASEAN will also be strengthened. The ASEAN-COMMIT workshop on TIP indicators later this year is a concrete example of the intensifying relationship. Existent national M&E mechanisms and expertise will be drawn upon for COMMIT reporting and monitoring purposes. A reporting template has been developed regionally to ensure compatibility, although different countries may opt for different approaches in line with SPAIV. The work planning process for 2016 will kick off shortly, with national-level consultations planned for inclusion and buy-in of all relevant actors. The objective is to have the national work plans based on SPAIV finalized for implementation in early 2016.

COMMIT SOM 11 in Vientiane, Lao PDR Concluded

Keywords: COMMIT, Prevention, protection,

The latest Regional COMMIT Task Force (TF) and Senior Officials Meeting (SOM 11) took place in Vientiane, Lao PDR on 23 and 24 November 2016. The meeting brought together the leadership of the national TFs from each of the 6 COMMIT members (Cambodia, China, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam), UN-ACT as the COMMIT Secretariat, other UN agencies and international organizations such as ASEAN, the diplomatic community and donor agencies including Norway and Sweden as UN-ACT's key contributors, civil society stakeholders and the COMMIT Youth Forum as well as private sector actors. On the agenda were COMMIT sustainability and capacity development; victim identification and referral mechanisms; engagement with youth, civil society, ASEAN and the private sector; monitoring and reporting progress of SPAIV implementation; and 2017 work planning. Key outcomes included the adoption of the common ASEAN-COMMIT indicators of human trafficking and related forms of exploitation as well as the COMMIT Guidelines on Victim Identification and Referral Mechanisms. Both are designed to help significantly improve victim identification in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) and ensure that those identified receive adequate support services. The next step will be to localize and operationalize the indicators and guidelines in national contexts. In another major decision, the COMMIT governments unanimously agreed to make strengthening labour migration systems in the GMS a priority for interventions in 2017, thereby recognizing the fundamental connectedness between human trafficking and labour migration, especially in Southeast Asia. The government delegates also decided to introduce an annually rotating COMMIT Chair, to be performed by the country hosting the SOM and working alongside UN-ACT to represent COMMIT externally whilst giving guidance and direction internally. This will help strengthen governmental ownership over COMMIT in the interest of the Process' long-term sustainability. With the end of 2016 approaching, those involved in the COMMIT Process will now proceed with work planning for 2017, based on the decision points reached at the Vientiane meeting. UN-ACT is looking forward to supporting the Process in implementing the various important agreements reached.
