Good Practice

Combating child labour in selected Stability Pact countries: Capacity building and direct action - Final Evaluation

Good Practice Description

The project teams have identified and documented and validated a significant number of good practices (or emerging good practices). In Moldova, for example, project stakeholders have identified, documented and validated and shared 24 emerging Good Practices in addressing trafficking and other WFCL. Moreover, 9 of these 24 Good Practices have been validated by the implementing partners and included in the regional publication "Emerging Good Practices and Lessons Learned" publication, ILO, 2007. In Romania, some 31 Good Practices were documented and presented to partners and the NSC for replication, with 14 Good Practices being introduced in the PROTECT CEE Sub Regional Manual on GPs. A key good practice in Romania has undoubtedly been the intense participation of children, who were identified as placing high value on the activities of the programmes. From the national perspective in Bulgaria another good practice is the integration of the WFCL issue into the school agenda, where WFCL has represented a very new topic for the teachers and head masters.

The successful piloting of a CLMS in a number of countries (and the documenting of the learning and experience of this process) has represented a good practice for the project stakeholders in national regions where pilot CLMS sub-projects were implemented. While a successful implementation experience for a CLMS is hardly 'new' for experienced ILO-IPEC stakeholders, it has nonetheless represented an important innovation and support tool for local stakeholders. It is another important legacy, as it provides the basis for the scaling of such pilots to a larger level of geographical coverage. The establishment of multi-disciplinary teams at the local/regional level that are engaged in the piloting and implementation of the CLMS is another good practice, and one which has represented an important innovation for stakeholders in the project countries. Again, while this may be seen as standard practices by many more experienced ILO-IPEC stakeholders, this has nonetheless represented an important innovation in many of these countries.
