This joint report by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and International Organization for Migration (IOM) examines human trafficking and illegal recruitment in Typhoon Haiyan-affected areas and evaluates if and how IOM and ILO livelihood interventions assisted vulnerable workers. The four-month research included literature and document review, interviews with 35 government and non-governmental organization (NGO) actors and a random sample of 169 households enrolled in IOM’s cash-for-work programmes and ILO’s emergency employment and other livelihood recovery programmes.
