Impact evaluation of USAID/Cambodia countering trafficking in persons (CTIP) program : final report

Impact Evalutation on the USAID/Cambodia Countering Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) Program which aimed to disrupt trafficking in person (TIP) patterns by offering diversified, climate-resilient livelihood pathways that reduce dependence on seasonal agriculture and by educating vulnerable individuals on unsafe migration. Two interventions were implemented. The first was the livelihoods package intervention that connected at-risk persons (ARPs) for trafficking to legitimate employers and trained ARPs in “soft skills” to help them retain their jobs. The second intervention added a customized bundle of activities to the first intervention, by offering technical assistance to ARPs based on commune-specific needs. The evaluation employed a rigorous RCT design involving random assignment of communes to each treatment group to assess the impacts of the two interventions.
