Human Trafficking
Trafficking in persons is a violation against human rights. It involves the act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring or receiving a person for the purpose of exploitation or forced labor, by exerting force, coercion or other means of pressure. Local governments should play a key role in preventing and combating human trafficking. CIFAL Jeju/JITC offers training for local government officials and stakeholders to equip them with the practical methods of raising public awareness on identification, protection and reintegration of victims by city-to-city cooperation and exchange of experiences.
Every year, a large number of people in the world cross borders in an irregular way. Unfortunately, this migration is often aided by smugglers or traffickers, which has brought high demands for safe migration in both public and private sectors. Mainstreaming migration into development, ensuring human rights of migrants and addressing negative perceptions for migrants and migration should be the key policy priorities for any government to achieve sustainable development. CIFAL Jeju/JITC provides various groups with an opportunity to learn multi-disciplinary approaches to protection of migrants by sharing best practices and engaging in facilitated sessions on comprehensive migration policies.
Disaster Risk Reduction
In the context of increased urbanization and global warming, the role of local governments in building resilient cities and adapting to climate change has been recognized as a critical component to sustainable development. The way a city plans and prepares for the future will impact the prospects of the city's sustainable development. CIFAL Jeju/JITC offers workshops aimed at strengthening the capacity of local governments from the Asia-Pacific region to implement the Sendai Framework for DRR and also facilitate the exchange of knowledge on how to incorporate DRR strategies into urban planning and design.
