  • Combating Forced Labour and Human trafficking in Zambia
    This project is supporting and complementing two other parallel projects: The first and major European Commission funded Euro 1.59 million project is being implemented jointly by ILO, UNICEF and IOM and is addressing the fundamental needs of institutional and human capacity building to combat trafficking of Zambians and other Nationalities. The second project is being implemented by the ILO SAP-FL and is basically supporting the analysis of available data on forced labour and providing the necessary information and knowledge base for better strategizing and planning of efforts to combat forced labour and trafficking. The availability of such information is also expected to facilitate and positively influence the expected outputs of the two other projects.
