Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking
Responding to Trafficking for Sexual Exploitation in South Asia:
A Regional Conference in India 10-11 October 2007, New Delhi
As the guardian of the UN Protocol against Trafficking in Persons, UNODC is taking the lead on an initiative to produce a turning point in the fight against trafficking in persons. It is called the UN Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (or UN.GIFT).
To launch UN.GIFT in South Asia, UNODC is organizing a major awareness-raising event in New Delhi on 10-11 October 2007. This Conference – entitled the “South Asia Regional Conference on Human Trafficking” – will bring together private sector leaders, government officials, civil society organizations, and partnering UN agencies in order to generate strategies and declare support for combating human trafficking, especially the trafficking of women and children for commercial sexual exploitation. Aside from opportunities to network, share best practices, and mobilize funds, one key result of the event will be the announcement of a Delhi Declaration, which will lay the foundation for post-conference follow-up. The Government of India (through the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Women and Child Development) is partnering with the UNODC for the October conference.
