On 19 July 2018, Delta 8.7 held a symposium co-hosted with the International Labour Organization (ILO) at UN headquarters. The symposium on “Measuring Progress Towards Target 8.7” brought together representatives from national governments, UN entities, civil society, academia, survivor networks and the private sector to share their experiences, discuss challenges and identify successes in measurement at the national, international and project levels. Over 90 experts from more than 40 organizations attended.

Participants stressed the need for movement towards standardized measurement frameworks and tools, the engagement of governments and the private sector in data collection and analysis, the identification of a shared indicator framework to facilitate impact evaluation, and stronger links between data and evidence, on the one hand, and policy development on the other.
