UN.GIFT Steering Committee endorses new strategy
The six organizations that form the Steering Committee of UN.GIFT have adopted a new Strategic Plan for the period 2012-2014 that will pave the way for future joint, innovative action against human trafficking.
The purpose of this Strategic Plan is to set out the overarching direction, priorities and implementation plan for the next phase of UN.GIFT. It has been designed for the use of the UN.GIFT Steering Committee (SC), as well as for Governments and programme funders (Government and non-government), partners and other collaborators of UN.GIFT as a statement of intent describing how UN.GIFT will contribute to the fight against trafficking in persons in the future.
The level of consultation and review maintained through the drafting process has helped ensure that this Strategic Plan represents the broadest possible agreement on UN.GIFT's future priorities and programme of action.
The new Strategic Plan 2012-14 was developed with the contributions of internationally renown experts and it incorporated the recommendations included in the recent external evaluation of UN.GIFT.
According to the 2012-2014 Strategy, UN.GIFT's core activities will fall within three broad and intersecting areas of work: Knowledge Management, Strategic Support and Interventions, Promoting Global Dialogue and Ensuring Inter-Agency Coordination and Co-operation.
The award winning virtual knowledge HUB will continue to serve as a platform for global dialogue. The HUB engages all stakeholders in various forms of multimedia; including online forums, webinars, blogs, and much more.
The Strategic Plan 2012-2014 was approved the 25 th Steering Committee meeting and its implementation is dependent upon availability of funding.
