THE TARGET

 

In 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals:
17 interrelated goals and 169 associated targets to guide global development.

 

In Target 8.7 leaders committed to:


"take immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking and secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour, including recruitment and use of child soldiers, and by 2025 end child labour in all its forms”.

Alliance 8.7 was created to help achieve this ambitious undertaking and coordinate with those
