Stop the
Trafficking.

AdvocaSEA equips individuals to be more conscientious with the indicators of trafficking. Raising awareness through social media platforms to amplify their impact plays an enormous role in shaping perceptions and guiding the public conversations about human trafficking.

Human
Trafficking

Human Trafficking

Southeast Asia is home to an immeasurable number of refugees who are displaced, lost and broken. Their vulnerability is often exploited by human traffickers. The epidemic often referred to as "modern slavery," has seen millions of men, women, and children unwillingly forced into unfair labor, and sexual and commercial exploitation.

Wildlife
Trafficking

Wildlife Trafficking

Southeast Asian countries contain some of the richest biodiversity in the world. In Southeast Asia, five countries have national animals of their own. Each species is unique and beautiful in its own way. Yet, we read about the continued extinction of these species.

The reason? It is the rampant poaching and trafficking of endangered animals that plague the region. Wildlife trafficking is a $26 billion illegal industry. With the continuous demand for Tiger parts for medicine, baby Orangutans as pets and Turtle shells as ornaments, the demand will continue to grow this lucrative black market business.

Environmental Sustainability

Environmental Sustainability

The adverse effects of irresponsible human consumption habits and rapid economic and population growth are detrimental to our planet. The consequences of environmental problems such as urbanization, deforestation, overfishing, global warming and air, land and ocean pollution have brought our planet toward the brink of irreparable damage. These cross-border environmental issues remain omnipresent in Southeast Asia. There must be a continued focus on educating the population to shift toward a sustainable lifestyle to ensure the survival of the natural ecosystems that surround us.

Human
Trafficking

As most human rights defenders are already aware, human trafficking is prevalent, particularly in Southeast Asia. Human trafficking affects more than 40 million men, women and children imprisoned in a web of forced labour, forced marriage, sexual and commercial exploitation. Human trafficking is one of the most lucrative organised crimes in the world and remains largely a clandestine crime, as it is underreported, underdetected, and therefore underprosecuted.

A 21st Century Solution

The ASEAN region is united in the issues it faces. Whether it concerns the hotbeds of wildlife trafficking or the continuous deforestation within the region, these nations suffer the consequences and negative extremes caused by such problems. The solutions, however, are inconsistent and sporadic across the nations. This platform aims to unite the solutions and relevant implementing partners to create a collective impact for the betterment of our planet and all its inhabitants.
