Prevention: Building Viable Livelihoods for the Most-At Risk of Trafficking-in-Persons and Unsafe Migration
As part of the program’s prevention component, the CTIP program is working to develop and expand market-driven locally-relevant livelihood options for those most vulnerable to trafficking and unsafe migration practices. These livelihood options will be climate-resilient alternatives to over-reliance on seasonal agriculture such as rice farming, which can contribute to unsafe migration during off-season periods and increasingly long periods of drought and high-temperatures.
The USAID-CTIP program is working with partner organisations that have experience and in-depth local knowledge of livelihood development to establish alternative crop and farming practices, rice banks, savings groups, crop diversification and provide at-risk individuals with access to job skills development.
The program aims to provide 32,000 individuals vulnerable to trafficking with alternative livelihood assistance.
