The International Conference on Child Labour in Agriculture will address the continuing widespread incidence and serious consequences of child labour in agricultural activities.
Towards catalysing meaningful and constructive action for protection of children from exploitation and elimination of child labour in agriculture, the International Conference on Child Labour in Agriculture is aiming at the following key objectives:
- High level advocacy for elimination of child labour in agriculture; and
- Empowerment, knowledge sharing, engagement and networking of civil society organisations to accelerate actions at grassroots and national levels.
Through an International Conference on Child Labour in Agriculture, the Global March will work with governments, UN agencies, farmer and out-grower organisations, trade unions, employers and businesses, multi-stakeholder initiatives, and civil society organisations to raise social and political awareness and will on child labour in agriculture, support the analysis of the knowledge base including the good practices, provide technical assistance and guidance to the civil society organisations and businesses in promoting decent work in agriculture, thereby empowering families, communities and civil society organisations to be active participants in the fight against exploitation of children, particularly in agriculture and allied processes.
