PROJECT RATIONALE
Project Summary

Within the Asia-Pacific Region, Bali Process member States, international organizations and non
governmental organizations undertake a broad range of training and capacity building activities
focused on combatting people smuggling, trafficking in persons, and related transnational crime. To
support Bali Process Members desire for greater access to information about training and capacity
building that can support them to address people smuggling and trafficking in persons, the Regional
Support Office to the Bali Process (RSO) will develop a Regional Catalogue of Training and Capacity
Building Courses. By developing a more complete picture of the range of training and capacity
building that is occurring, it is intended to assist States to implement more informed and
comprehensive training responses: to identify opportunities to develop partnerships and increase
regional cooperation and harmonization of training responses, as well as reduce duplication and
inefficiency in training efforts.

The Regional Catalogue of Training and Capacity Building Courses will provide a simple, user friendly
repository of available training and capacity building activities available within and among Bali

Process member States. It will highlight existing tools and training that is available to the
membership; as well as highlight the training capabilities and specialties of the States and
organizations who wish to contribute. The tool will be made available online as web page for Bali
Process members.

The Regional Catalogue of Training and Capacity Building Courses will provide Bali Process member
States with information about the core training elements required to effectively manage borders,
reduce trafficking and smuggling, promote safe and orderly migration, prosecute perpetrators of the
crimes of trafficking and smuggling, while protecting victims and vulnerable persons.
The Catalogue will enable users to identify existing training providers and courses, training materials
which are available for use and partners from within the Bali Process membership.
Contributions to the catalogue will be voluntary, in line with the principles of the Bali Process as a
voluntary and non-binding forum. The success of the Catalogue will depend on the willingness of
States and international organizations and training providers to contribute training courses, that
build a picture of the training and capacity building courses that are supporting States to respond to
people smuggling, trafficking in persons and related transnational crime.

Background and Rationale

This project responds to the commitment made under the Regional Support Office 2015-2017
Forward Work Plan, to identify regional capacity building activities being undertaken in the Asia-
Pacific Region which relates to people smuggling, trafficking in persons, protection of refugees and,
other vulnerable groups with specific needs including, stateless people and separated and
unaccompanied children.

Project Objectives

The Regional Catalogue of Training and Capacity Building Courses objectives are as follow:
i. create mechanisms for better information sharing and promotion of best practices;
ii. develop a comprehensive understanding of training materials which are available for use,
within and among the membership;
iii. enhance Bali Process member States capacity to effectively respond to crimes related to
people smuggling and human trafficking and related transnational crime; and
iv. promote greater regional cooperation between Bali Process member States and participating
organizations and enable them to consider further harmonization of their approaches to
training and capacity building.

PROPOSED RESPONSE
Project Activities

The Regional Catalogue of Training and Capacity Building Courses online tool will be designed to be
user friendly and easy to navigate. The online tool will include references to useful training courses,
materials and who to contact to access them. The online tool will be designed to accommodate the

2
needs of Bali Process Members, and can be further refined in the future based on feedback from
Members.

It is anticipated the Regional Catalogue of Training and Capacity Building Courses relating to people
smuggling, people trafficking and related transnational crime in the Asia Pacific Region will be
launched in the second half of 2017.

Bali Process member States, Bali Process international organizations, Bali Process observers and
participating organizations will be engaged to contribute to and provide updates to the Catalogue.
The process of seeking and updating content will be ongoing, for the Catalogue to remain useful and
relevant to members. The success of the Catalogue will depend on the willingness of Bali Process
States, international organizations and training providers to participate and contribute training and
capacity building courses, to build a broader picture of the training courses that are supporting States.

Project Outcomes

The Regional Catalogue of Training and Capacity Building Courses will equip Bali Process Members
with a simple tool that will enable rapid identification of training materials and capacity building
activities that may be available to the membership. It will result in government officials and
international agencies having better access to training and capacity building materials which can
support effective responses to counter people smuggling, people trafficking and related
transnational crime. An improved understanding of available training and capacity building courses
within the Asia Pacific Region can be used to better inform national and regional responses to these
issues.

RSO CAPACITY TO ADDRESS THE ISSUES IDENTIFIED


Since its inception in 2002, the Bali Process on People Smuggling, Trafficking in Persons and Related
Transnational Crime has effectively raised regional awareness of the consequences of people
smuggling, trafficking in persons and related transnational crime, and developed and implemented
strategies and facilitated practical cooperation in response. More than 45 members, including
UNHCR, IOM and UNODC, as well as a number of observer countries and international agencies
participate in this voluntary forum.

The Regional Support Office was established by the Bali Process in 2012 to support and strengthen
practical cooperation on refugee protection and international migration, including human trafficking
and smuggling, border management, and other components of migration management in the Asia
and the Pacific.

PARTNERSHIPS AND COORDINATION
Agencies such as IOM, UNHCR, UNODC and INTERPOL, member states who are training donors, and
key training providers/projects in this area such as AAPTIP and JCLEC, will be invited by the RSO to
contribute training programmes in the training catalogue.

Contributions to the catalogue by partners will be voluntary.
