It aligns with the Key Recommendations and Follow-Up Actions of the 2021 High-Level Officials Meeting (HLOM), in particular with Recommendation 2, entitled 'Enhance access to international protection'. This pledge contributes towards SDGs 5, 8, 10 and 16, and upholding the rights of trafficked persons. Furthermore, given that anti-trafficking is a thematic area of commonality between the Global Compact on Refugees and the Global Compact on Migration, when pledging for the GCR, States and stakeholders may submit similar pledges under the Global Compact for Migration in line with Objective 10 and vice versa.
It aims to enhance access to protection, asylum, and solutions for asylum-seekers, refugees, stateless persons, and migrants, who are victims of trafficking or at risk of being trafficked, including through increased scope of and access to protection services to mitigate trafficking risks and respond to the needs of victims, and through strengthening referral mechanisms, including those between asylum and the anti-trafficking systems. Expanding protection and assistance services will also benefit returnees and host communities.
