Join the official side-event of the UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Finance's Role in Reducing Modern Slavery: COVID-19's Lessons on Protecting the Most Vulnerable, a virtual webinar that will explore the role of sustainable finance in addressing modern slavery and human trafficking, with a particular focus on lessons learned from the COVID-19 era.

Featuring keynote remarks from H.E. Amina Mohammed, UN Deputy Secretary-General, this event will consider how the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated people's vulnerability to labour exploitation and trafficking, the impact it is having on survivors of modern slavery, and the risks it poses for migrant workers in particular, before then exploring the key role the financial sector has to play in fostering effective action to address these issues. The event will draw, in particular, on insights and experiences of former members of the Liechtenstein Initiative’s Financial Sector Commission on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.
