With the support of the European Union, the Jordanian authorities hosted a high-level event yesterday in Amman to promote the recently adopted National Strategy and Action Plan to Prevent Human Trafficking in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (2019-2022). The event aimed at promoting the document to the relevant stakeholders in the Kingdom, as well as to present the Strategy’s objectives and the plan for its implementation in practice.
The Strategy was developed within the framework of “Support to the Mobility Partnership between the European Union and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (JEMPAS)”, a programme funded by the EU and implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD).
The National Strategy and Action Plan to Prevent Human Trafficking in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (2019-2022) aims at setting a common vision and basis for the Jordanian response to human trafficking, which includes all stakeholders involved in combating human trafficking. This Strategy entails clear strategic priorities to combat human trafficking, describes specific institutional responsibilities and sets concerted procedures to reach strategic priorities.
