Inter-Agency Coordination Group against Trafficking in Persons

The Inter-Agency Coordination Group against Trafficking in Persons (ICAT) is a policy forum mandated to improve coordination and cooperation among UN entities and other relevant international organisations to facilitate a holistic and comprehensive approach to preventing and combating trafficking in persons, including protection of and support for victims, as reflected in relevant resolutions of the United Nations.


ICMPD joined the ICAT network in 2016, becoming one of the few non-UN organisations invited to participate. ICMPD engages in the discussions to share information, experiences and good practices on anti-trafficking activities, as well as finding appropriate mechanisms for joint actions, responses and common positions. As a result, ICAT contributes to improving comprehensive implementation of all international anti-trafficking instruments and standards of relevance and promotes effective and efficient use of existing resources, by virtue of the increased coordination among the parties.
