The Policy Practice provided a staff member (Alex Duncan) as team leader of a three-person team to review the first phase of the Southern Africa Counter-Trafficking Programme (SACTAP I), and, subject to the review, to appraise a SACTAP II. The programme which is funded by the Norwegian Government, and implemented by the International Organisation for Migration, had made a good start, and a second phase is now under way. SACTAP is now in its second phase after successfully implementing its two year pilot programme.
