Cross Cutting Issues

The USAID-funded Combating Trafficking in Per-sons (CTIP) was implemented by The Asia Founda-tion (TAF) and its partners. The initial implementa-tion period of the CTIP program (AID-367-A-10-00003) was from 1st August 2010 to 31stJuly 2015 which was later extended up to 30th September 2016 after the earthquake.

Key activities

CTIP was designed for Nepal in 2010 to reduce human trafficking in Nepal and protect the rights of victims.
The programme was designed in a holistic ap-proach working in four key components.
Protection: The interventions focused in develop-ing a holistic rehabilitation and reintegration pro-cesses for survivors of human trafficking and Gen-der based Violence (GBV).
Prosecution: CTIP invested in making the judicial system responsive to the needs of the survivors.
Prevention: The prevention component of CTIP focused on raising awareness on Trafficking in Per-sons (TIP) and safe migration issues as well as en-hancing the capacity of key community and dis-trict-level government stakeholders.
Coordination and capacity-building: CTIP built the capacity of
government agencies and local implementing partners striving to combat trafficking in Nepal

SW Nepal was assigned to undertake the final evaluation of the six year-long USAID funded Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) to assess the gaps, challenges and achievements of the program under each of its thematic components, i.e., Protection, Prosecution, Prevention and Capac-ity building and Coordination.
Furthermore, the assignment intended to docu-ment lessons learnt and success stories and to analyze by what means the program strategies have contributed in making core interventions sustainable beyond the life of the project and pro-vide recommendations for similar future interven-tions. Besides, these four key components, the District Information Desk (DID) and Mobile Infor-mation Desk (MID) operated by CTIP as earthquake response was also assessed. The final evaluation used mixed research methodology (both qualita-tive and quantitative). As a part of the evaluation, the evaluation team undertook 54 Key Informant Interviews (KIIs), 6 Focus Group Discussion (FGDs) and Group Meeting with various central, district and local level stakeholders and implementing partners.
A structured questionnaire survey was conducted with Family Financial Planning Education (FFPE) beneficiaries targeting the families of returnee mi-grants, current migrants and potential migrants.


The evaluation team provided specific recommendations at the programmatic level in consideration with the four key components that CTIP covered.
