AU Horn of Africa Initiative
The AU-HOA initiative was launched in 2014, in Khartoum, Sudan, in response to the rise of human trafficking and smuggling of migrants in the region. It involves so called ‘core countries’ Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Sudan and neighboring countries: Djibouti, Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan. AU-HOAi also partners with Libya, Tunisia, Norway, Italy, Malta, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia and Yemen as well as IOs such as IOM, UNHCR, IGAD and other RECs, Interpol, UNODC, and the League of Arab States.
