Three billion cups of tea are drunk each day; it's the world's second most popular drink after water. Yet tea workers are often targeted by human traffickers and coerced into forced labour, domestic servitude and in some cases the sex industry. This report looks at the tea industry in Kenya, Sri Lanka and India to highlight supply chain issues and working conditions, to contribute to the advancement of SDG target 8.7 to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking by 2025.
Contributing to SDGs 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) and 17 (Partnerships for the Goals), this policy report explores collaboration opportunities between penal policy, public health, development and human rights in preparation to discuss at the 2016 United Nations General Assembly on the World Drug Problem.

Are NGOs able to meet long-term transformative goals in their work for development and social justice? Given their weak roots in civil society and the rising tide of technocracy that has swept through the world of foreign aid, most NGOs remain poorly placed to influence the drivers of social change. By applying their knowledge of local contexts to strengthen their roles in empowerment and social transformation, they have the ability to advance SDG target 16.7 to ensure responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making at all levels.
Linking to Goal 16, this report provides guidance on how to initiate and implement anti-corruption collective action initiatives while showcasing various examples from collective action projects worldwide.
This report seeks to advance the discussion on how the private sector can make positive contributions to peace in conflict-affected and high-risk areas around the world and, as a result, help to realise of Goal 16.
