UNODC is convening this briefing to inform Member States and other stakeholders about the key findings of UNODC's 2022 Global Report on Trafficking in Persons. This briefing will assist in taking stock of the persistent and emerging challenges in responding to trafficking in persons, as well as recommitting to working together to close gaps in our collective responses to the crime. As the world is facing global crises, more than ever, relying on multilateralism and effective internationally binding legal instruments, such as the UN Trafficking in Persons Protocol, is essential to prevent and combat trafficking in persons. The availability of timely and comprehensive data on patterns and flows of trafficking is essential to inform context-specific and evidence-based interventions by national authorities to assist victims and enhance investigative methods to stop criminals and better detect victims.
