Learn more about FAO’s contribution to the eradication of child labour


FAO has continued to scale-up its efforts to address child labour in agriculture, including fisheries, forestry and livestock, during the period 2012-2014. Contributions from FAO at major conferences and strengthened inter-agency cooperation at global, regional and national level are raising the profile of an integrated approach to child labour in agriculture. FAO is providing policy and technical support in a number of countries such as Cambodia, LAO PDR, Malawi, Mali, Niger and Tanzania.

To achieve positive change in policies and practice, FAO is also enhancing knowledge and building capacity.

Overall, FAO is integrating child labour concerns across its work areas to intensify impact. You can learn more about FAO’s contribution to the reduction and prevention of child labour in agriculture here.
