Launching the 5.2 Global Partnership

CATW International June 29, 2017 Download Attachment

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets, further codify UN commitments to sustain our planet and protect the fundamental rights of every human being by 2030. Goals 5, 8 and 16, address human trafficking, from its causes to its consequences, with specific targets (5.2, 8.7 and 16.2) that each focus on combating trafficking in persons. Each target is distinct in its framework, equal in importance, and interconnected in its respective scope.

Despite the commitments made in Goal 5, investments toward achieving gender equality, the empowerment of women and girls and ending gender-based violence are still lagging. The 5.2 Global Partnership, a multi-stakeholder group initiated by CATW, endeavors to address those gaps by urging United Nations Member States, the UN and its agencies to address violence and discrimination against women and girls as human rights violations with particular focus on trafficking, sexual exploitation and the exploitation of the prostitution of others.
