FOREWORD
Human trafficking is the illegal trade in human beings for the purpose of exploitation such as commercialsexual exploitation, forced labour or forced prostitution. Bangladesh is generally a source country fortrafficking of men, women and children. A significant share of Bangladesh's trafficking victims are menwho are subjected to fraudulent recruitment for work overseas and are often subsequently exploitedunder conditions of forced labour or debt-bondage. Women and children from Bangladesh are alsotrafficked to other countries for commercial sexual exploitation or exploitation through labour. The Government of Bangladesh has been making sincere efforts to combat all forms of trafficking inpersons, especially trafficking in women and children. The Government, working in partnership withNGOs and IGOs/INGOs, has been implementing a series of anti-human-trafficking activities. The mostsignificant achievement from these efforts is the recently enacted comprehensive anti-traffickinglegislation - the Human Trafficking Deterrence and Suppression Ordinance 2011 (Ord. No. 2 of 2011). Inthis context, the challenges that lie ahead for the government, civil society members and internationalagencies working in this field are to translate the goals of this law into reality. To that end, a NationalAction Plan outlining the responsibilities of different agencies with respect to planned activities wouldprovide a vital tool for combating human trafficking, both domestic and cross-border, in Bangladesh. The earlier National Plan of Action 2008, which has just expired in 2011, focused on trafficking in womenand children. The current National Plan of Action for Combating Human Trafficking 2012-2014 intends tocover all types of internal and cross-border human trafficking and seeks to address the weaknesses of the previous NPA. The NPA 2012 also aspires to meet anti-trafficking international standards andpractices, including those developed in the South Asian region.We hope that the NPA 2012 will usher in a renewed commitment to combat human trafficking and thatadequate actions will be undertaken to realize this commitment. I am grateful to the members of the NPADrafting Committee as well as to our development partners, NGOs and other related persons for theirgreat contributions towards formulating the NPA 2012.
