- Before starting any local Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Response initiatives and developing a program / project plan, it is important to know the local environment, context of the issues, and what other responders / agencies are engaged in this field of work.
- A PESTLE Analysis stands for Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal and Environmental factors. This type of analysis allows us to form an impression of the factors that might impact a new Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Response program or project.
- It is important to map current responses and agencies that are already engaged in this field of work. This can be done as desk research and review of NGOs, government and church responses in your location, and issues that you wish to address. This will build up a picture of who is doing what and where the overlaps and gaps are.
