The ILO is a key US partner for achieving international rule of law to combat modern slavery and human trafficking. With support from the US government, the ILO has made continuous progress toward improving living and working conditions and adherence to international labor standards in countries around the world.
Funding from US Federal Agencies has enabled the ILO to develop further research aimed at understanding the extent of forced labor and human trafficking, implement evidence-based projects, and training to improve enforcement and ensure compliance with laws and regulations at the national level. Efforts have also included practical products including handbooks, training tools and surveys.
The project aims to reduce trafficking in fisheries, by strengthening coordination and increasing the efficiency and efficacy of the efforts already underway at the national and regional levels.
