A process-based approach to combat trafficking in children and women: sharing preliminary experiences from an ILO-project in the Mekong Sub-region

Covers ILO-project combating trafficking in children and women. Includes basic organizational information, general information about the Process Based Approach, evaluation of experiences and achievements to date, conclusions and lessons learnt.

The TICW Project consists of a variety of activities, chosen on the basis of experience from previous IPEC activities. The TICW Project encourages stakeholder ownership through participatory planning at the national and sub11 national levels, and operates where possible through existing structures such as national steering committees.

The community development projects in selected geographical areas promote improved access to existing services, development of alternative livelihood strategies, skills training, income generation, basic education, and links to other initiatives in the same areas. The projects capitalize wherever possible on existing services and try to complement rather than duplicate ongoing interventions.

Intervention sites and types of interventions are selected through a participatory process involving key stakeholders at different levels, such as policy makers, activists, and village representatives: National level data are reviewed, and provinces selected. Specific provincial level data are then examined, and districts and villages are selected for interventions. Data collection at the local level includes focus group discussion with children, women, and other groups, and covers both problems and solutions. Implementing agencies update and expand on these data during the course of the project, for monitoring, learning, and evaluation.
