Nairobi July 2019 - High level retreat
On 29 July 2019, the Wayamo Foundation hosted a high-level retreat with the aim of enhancing the capacity of East African states to investigate and prosecute transnational trafficking and migrant smuggling cases, as well as to strengthen inter-agency and cross-border collaboration in the region.

Heads of the anti-trafficking units of Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Djibouti, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Somalia were invited to analyse the issue of trafficking from a regional perspective, propose improvements for judicial co-operation and reflect on an East African strategy that better addresses human trafficking and migrant smuggling cases.

The event was funded through the Better Migration Management (BMM) programme. BMM is a regional, multi-year, multi-partner programme funded by the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ). The overall objective is to improve migration management in the Horn of Africa, and in particular to address the trafficking and smuggling of migrants within and from the region.
