There are an estimated 32 million fishers in Asia. Fishing sector in Thailand, China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea relies on migrant workers from Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Viet Nam. In 2017, the Thai fishing and seafood processing sectors together employed more than 600,000 workers, of whom 302,000 were registered migrant workers primarily from Thailand and Cambodia. Within this context labour exploitation and human trafficking – particularly affecting vulnerable migrants – are prevalent. While efforts to address such exploitation within these sectors have developed over recent years, there still exist gaps in frameworks for ensuring the enforcement of labour standards and proper mechanisms for the identification, referral, and (re)integration of victims of forced labour and human trafficking.
To address these gaps UNDP will partner with ILO and IOM on an EU-funded regional programme on labour migration in the fishing sector. To strengthen policy and practice, UNDP – positioned as it is with long-established relationship with regional stakeholders – will support further development of the transnational referral mechanism through the Coordinated Mekong Ministerial Initiative against Trafficking (COMMIT) Process for victims of trafficking/forced labour and vulnerable migrants.
This specific initiative falls under UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub Human Mobility Team’s work strengthening multi-stakeholder responses to ensure that the opportunities of migration for driving development are harnessed and the challenges of forced migration/displacement addressed.
