(b) to present an update on the costed and time bound integrated strategy to the Governing Body at its 337th Session in November 2019;

(c) to continue the ongoing project-based efforts to eliminate child labour using Regular Budget Supplementary Account funds and other public funds in the short term;

(d) to continue efforts to mobilize various sustainable sources of funding from the public and private sector with appropriate safeguards.
