CP-TING Phase II - Preventing Trafficking for Labour Exploitation in China is a partnership between the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the All-China Women’s Federation (ACWF). It is implemented in close collaboration with the Chinese Government, and receives funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). The project was designed with partners, and draws on lessons learned from the Project to Prevent Trafficking in Girls and Young Women for Labour Exploitation within China (CP-TING, 2004-2008), and the Mekong Sub-regional Project to Combat Trafficking in Children and Women (TICW), which operated in China’s Yunnan province, 2000-2008.
Preventing Trafficking for Labour Exploitation in China promotes improved labour rights of women and children in China with the goal of reducing trafficking for labour exploitation. To this end, the project seeks to:
- Improve relevant policy frameworks;
- Improve the implementation of trafficking prevention measures in pilot provinces; and
- Increase the ability of women and children to better protect their rights and migrate safely.
We continue to use the acronym ‘CP-TING’ because it is a recognized brand in China for effective trafficking prevention approaches and safe migration in pilot provinces.
Prevention is the most sustainable long-term solution to trafficking. The CP-TING project developed a number of successful models for prevention in both ‘sending’ and ‘receiving’ provinces, and established effective approaches for coordinated partner action and mainstreaming service delivery.
Phase II of CP-TING will enhance service delivery and reach more of China’s young vulnerable migrant population. China now has a National Plan of Action in Trafficking, and the project will support the implementation of provincial level Plans of Action in Yunnan, Anhui, Hunan, Guizhou, Sichuan, Fujian, Jiangsu, and Guangdong.
- The project will increase the capacity of agencies, social partners, and communities in eight provinces to deliver relevant services to vulnerable groups;
- 75,000 women (age 19-24) and children (boys and girls under 18) at risk of being trafficked will be empowered to protect themselves from being trafficked;
- The good practice models will be widely disseminated; and
- Leaders who design and monitor provincial programs will become advocates for trafficking prevention, effectively mobilizing local resources to ensure mainstreaming of programs within government work plans.
