Delta 8.7 Project & Knowledge Platform on Modern Slavery, Human Trafficking, Forced Labour and Child Labour
With Target 8.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals, 193 countries pledged their commitment to take effective measures to eradicate modern slavery, human trafficking, and forced labour by 2030 and child labour by 2025. UNU is currently developing a global, an online knowledge platform that will help policy actors understand and use evidence to adopt policy responses that will contribute to achieving Target 8.7.
The knowledge platform brings together the most useful data, evidence, research, and news; analyses cutting-edge data; and helps people understand that data so it can be translated it into effective policy. To contribute to the success of the knowledge platform, the UNU-CPR team is building strong partnerships with mass media (including online and print news and social media), government, researchers, civil society, the private sector and more.
