Human trafficking

Data related to the scale of human trafficking and the profile of victims and perpetrators are needed for evidence-based counter-trafficking policies.

The increasing significance of human trafficking is illustrated by its inclusion in the targets of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the global development agenda endorsed by 193 UN Member states. Human trafficking is directly mentioned in various SDG targets, raising the needs for developing relevant data sources, improving existing sources, and measuring the indicators and progress towards targets related to human trafficking.
