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.

Protecting and Empowering Youth Population for a Stronger Post-COVID World



12 November 2020, Jeju, Republic of Korea – UNITAR CIFAL Jeju arranged a virtual dialogue webinar on “Protecting and Empowering Youth Population for a Stronger Post-COVID World” on November 12, 2020 using the online platform “Zoom”.


The event invited 27 representatives from the governmental sector along with NGOs and International Organizations. They came from eight countries including: India, Nepal, Bangladesh, the Philippines, and Vietnam.


The event consisted of two presentations by experts and a plenary session including Q&A. The invited experts were Sara Castro-Hallgren, Programme Management Officer at UN Office for Sustainable Development based in Incheon, the Republic of Korea, and Guillaume Biganzoli, Junior Policy Analyst at OECD based in Paris, France.


The experts presented the implications of the pandemic on youth population along with encouraging youth-led socio-entrepreneurship, youth leadership, and economic activities through design thinking. The expert from OECD shared a policy strategy named “National Youth Strategies (NYS)”, as a vehicle for better strategic planning and principles of the OECD assessment frameworks that NYS need to comply with. The participants shared a country-based experience on the pandemic-stricken youth population and exchanged lessons learned for better designing youth-related policy strategies. Both the experts and participants discussed cases of innovative approaches led by youth, the importance of youth participation in politics, how to reflect the needs of youth on policy making, and how to carry out needs assessments and collect data for developing policy strategies suitable for youth.
