Brief Description

The idea behind the second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II) 2016-2020 is to harness effective public participation in a coordinated and structured manner at all levels. A major focus area identified to achieve this is ensuring gender equality and women's empowerment. In this regard, the Government of Ethiopia has committed to work towards the elimination of violence against women during the implementation period of this plan. Revisions in existing legal provisions as well as creation of new measures during the given time period are based on the objectives of GTP II. Under the GTP II, combating human trafficking is identified as one of the strategic pillars under the labor affairs sub-sector’s development plan.
