The @g20org Virtual Summit on Thurs will be a defining moment for international cooperation.

We need a global response to this truly global crisis. No country can exit it alone.

1/10 #auspol #COVIDー19
*1 – A global response mechanism*

There’s a world shortage of key resources: time, medical equipment, hospital beds, pharma. Zero-sum competition for them increases risk for all.

A science-based coord'n mechanism gets them where they provide most protection for everyone.

*2 – A temporary regime for moving response-critical people + goods.*

Moving personnel to where they are most needed would be easier with ‘green lanes’ like those suggested by @vonderleyen

1/? THREAD: What can the world learn from Brazil’s struggle to #endslavery?

This week I’m visiting Brazil to consider that question.

Combining mobile inspection teams, social action & big data, Brazil’s efforts are amongst the most sophisticated in the world.
2/ >50000 modern slaves have been rescued by the Brazilian state since 1995.
On behalf of @UNUCPR @Delta87org & @FinComSlavery I'll meet with @undpbrazil @ilo @MPT_PGT @reporterb @experian & more, focusing on policy in agriculture & finance.
