The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) have praised Sudan’s endorsement to the Joint 2015-2017 Strategy to address Human Trafficking, Kidnappings and Smuggling of Persons
During his speech at the launch ceremony of the 2015-2017 Strategy hosted by Sudan’s government on Wednesday, UNHCR Representative in Sudan, Mohammed Adar, said that there is still a long way to go to effectively address this regional phenomenon, noting that the number of newly arriving refugees to Sudan doubled last year, pointing out and the tragic deaths of more than 1,800 people so far this year in the Mediterranean Sea highlights the need for transnational cooperation and longer-term solution
"It is critical we move beyond a local counter-trafficking and smuggling response and find alternatives to onward movements. This includes enhancing self-reliance opportunities for asylum-seekers, refugees and migrants in camps and urban areas in ways that also benefit Sudan's generous host communities. While we thank donor countries for the important support already received, more resources will be needed to maintain our collective response," Adar added.
Cooperation between the government, the United Nations and IOM in addressing the serious protection risks faced by vulnerable asylum-seekers, refugees and migrants started in 2012, with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and IOM working with the Sudanese authorities to address the phenomenon of trafficking and smuggling in Sudan, from strengthening security structures to providing assistance to victims of trafficking.
“Whether intended or not, many spend extended periods in Sudan where they live and work before perhaps returning home or making the onward journey. Sudan has come along with other African and European partners under the Khartoum process to jointly tackle these issues. The United Nations and IOM Strategy is a key vehicle to operationalize the Khartoum Process objectives in Sudan,” Mario Lito Malanca, IOM Chief of Mission in Sudan said.
