Pathfinder Countries Old

By adopting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in 2015, all UN member states committed to Target 8.7 to end child labour by 2025 and forced labour, modern slavery and human trafficking by 2030. This is a very ambitious goal which requires accelerated action.

In 2016, Alliance 8.7 was established as a global partnership to support countries in their respective efforts. Fifteen countries have formally expressed interest in becoming Alliance 8.7 pathfinder countries and 11 of those are holding, or have already held, strategic planning workshops during the first half of 2019.
