  5. The twin challenges of child labour and educational marginalisation in the ECOWAS region - An overview

    01 July 2014

    As part of the efforts to address the present urgent situation, Governments and regional institutions have developed the ECOWAS Child Policy and the accompanying Strategic Plan of Action for the ECOWAS Child Policy, as well as the West Africa Regional Action Plan to Eliminate Child Labour (and especially its Worst Forms) and the Accra Declaration of the ECOWAS-ILO Symposium on West Africa Regional Action Plan which signal the national intent to eliminate child labour and provide an essential framework for efforts to achieve this goal. This Report was produced to help translate these plans into concrete actions. It is specifically aimed at building the evidence base necessary for the design and targeting of specific interventions against child labour. It brings together the most recent available information from a variety of national household surveys to provide a detailed picture of child labour and the related challenge of educational marginalisation in the ECOWAS region.

This report, prepared by the Viet Nam’s Institute of Labour Science and Social Affairs (ILSSA), was developed from the data set provided by the NCLS 2012.

  7. The twin challenges of child labour and educational marginalisation in the South-East and East Asia region: An overview

    01 May 2014

    In view of the measurement challenges, and in order to facilitate cross-country comparisons, the Report uses two methods to approximate child labour. It first presents child labour estimates based on the methodology employed by ILO in its global child labour estimates. Following this, it relies on the broader concept of employment as an approximation of child labour. Children in employment are those engaged in any economic activity for at least one hour during the reference period. It includes forms of work in both the formal and informal economy; inside and outside family settings; work for pay or profit (in cash or in kind, part-time or full-time), or as a domestic worker outside the child’s own household for an employer (with or without pay). It is worth repeating that these child labour approximations are not necessarily consistent with child labour as defined in legal terms in individual countries. The Report focuses mainly on children between 5 and 14 years of age; the analysis is extended to include 15-17 year olds when dealing with hazardous work.
