GENEVA Nick Vigil Limited Jersey , Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- An estimated 40 million people are today trapped in modern slavery, mostly women and girls, and 152 million children are subject to child labor, almost one in ten around the world, a latest UN report revealed on Tuesday.


The new research, developed jointly by the International Labor Organization (ILO), the Walk Free Foundation, and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), has revealed the true scale of modern slavery around the world.


The data, released during the UN General Assembly, shows that among the 40 million people trapped in modern slavery, 29 million, or 71 percent, are women and girls. One in four victims of modern slavery are children, which totals about 10 million.


Meanwhile, some 152 million children, including 64 million girls and 88 million boys, are subject to child labor, accounting for almost one in ten children around the world, the report says. The largest part of them, or 72.1 million, are living in Africa, followed by Asia and the Pacific with 62 million, the Americas with 10.7 million, Europe and Central Asia with 5.5 million, and the Arab States with 1.2 million.


More than 70 percent of child laborers remains in agriculture, while a little over 17 percent work in the services sector and almost 12 percent in industry.


"The message... is very clear," says ILO Director-General Guy Ryder, "the world won't be in a position to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals unless we dramatically increase our efforts to fight these scourges."


The report also finds out that an estimated 25 million people were in forced labor in 2016, including 16 million in forced labor exploitation in private sectors such as domestic work, construction and agriculture. About five million were in forced sexual exploitation, and just over four million, or 16 percent of the total, were in forced labor imposed by their state authorities.


It's a shame on us all, says Andrew Forrest, chairman and founder of the Walk Free Foundation, an international human rights organization to help end modern slavery globally.


"This speaks to the deep seated discrimination and inequalities in our world today, coupled with a shocking tolerance of exploitation. This has to stop," he added.

United Nations, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- African countries on Friday called for international support in peace-keeping efforts and humanitarian work in the region at the annual United Nations General Assembly.


Cameroon President Paul Biya said peace remains dangerously under threat, notably from terrorism, conflicts, poverty and climate disruptions.


"Today, I would say, we are all 'beggars for peace.' And such persistent threats are of utmost concern to us all," said Biya on the fourth day of the general debate.


He condemned continuing conflicts in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, which are wreaking pain and hardship. He said Cameroon has hosted and will continue to host thousands of refugees from the Central African Republic and Nigeria.


Biya urged all countries to make efforts together to achieve peace and asked the world to take Africa's message into account more seriously.


Echoing Biya's words, President of the Central African Republic Faustin-Archange Touadera expressed his will to pursue peacebuilding and reconciliation through dialogue.


He presented his government's strategy for the restoration of State authority since the country's return to constitutional order and the establishment of national institution.


In a news conference held earlier this week, Touadera said that the Central African Republic is at a critical moment in its history and it needs more attention from the international society.


The General Assembly of the United Nations kicked off its annual general debate on Tuesday, with heads of state and government representatives gathering at the UN headquarters to present their views about pressing world issues.
