Site Policies

The Delta 8.7 team, with input from the Reference Group, has developed comprehensive policies to ensure the quality of all information presented on the platform. For more information about any of these policies please email info@delta87.org.

Data Sourcing

Delta87.org data dashboards are populated with publicly available data sources, including from United Nations entities, which often draw upon governmental data.

To ensure the most complete and accurate coverage of data relevant to Target 8.7, national governments have been invited to comment on the data used in the country data dashboards before the dashboards are published on Delta 8.7. The notice and comment period allows governments to provide additional context to the current data, indicate relevant data sources that are missing and highlight any government efforts to address issues related to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour and child labour that were not included on the initial dashboard. Official responses are published in their entirety on the national dashboard.

Editorial

The scope of topics covered on Delta87.org is decided through consultations with the platform’s Reference Group and other expert stakeholders. Authors are chosen based on their experience and expertise in data, research and methods for different issue areas related to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour and child labour. All Policy Areas go through a peer review process before publication.

If you are interested in contributing to the Delta87.org Forum, you can send your pitches to submissions@delta87.org.

Survivor Voices

Survivors and victims are the human face of much of the data and evidence discussed across Delta87.org. The Delta 8.7 team regularly consults with survivor leaders to ensure their voices are thoughtfully embedded across the platform, including in articles, data and outreach activities.
