Priority actions will include direct assistant to victims and strengthening the capacities of relevant national authorities to identify and respond to vulnerable migrants needs. Specific programmes will target labour and sexual exploitation in the mining sector.
  • Prevent conflicts and violent extremism in border areas through related activities, such as assessment of border areas, enhanced dialogues and cooperation between communities, traditional leaders and local authorities.
