Issue Brief: Greater Mekong Sub-Region | United Nations Action for Cooperation Against Trafficking in Persons
The United Nations Action for Cooperation Against Trafficking in Persons (UN-ACT) is a regional project under UNDP, launched in April 2014. It builds on its predecessor project, the United Nations Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking (UNIAP, 2000-2014). UN-ACT counters trafficking in the GMS and beyond through effective coordination and technical support to anti-trafficking partners. It is positioned at the strategic intersection of trafficking patterns, policy, research, governance, coordination and direct interventions, as a facilitator, expert and innovator in the region’s anti-trafficking efforts.
