Child labour in agriculture in Lebanon

A guide for practitioners

This guide will serve as a significant tool for practitioners in Lebanon and the Arab countries who are attending to the issue of child labour in agriculture. Moreover, it represents a pillar for present and continuous collaborative efforts between two sister UN agencies (the ILO and FAO) and their national counterparts, the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Agriculture. It is within the framework of the Global Understanding between ILO and FAO to combat child labour in agriculture that this guide has been developed. Specifically, this guide aims at raising awareness among practitioners in the field of agricultural labour of the seriousness of the problem of child labour and its implications, and to sensitize all stakeholders involved in agricultural work to the various possibilities for limiting its severity. In particular, the guide was designed as a reference manual for trainers of trainers conducting workshops in the field of child labour in agriculture in Lebanon, but may also be used by all stakeholders and practitioners in the field of agriculture.
