Consultation Workshop on the Development of the National Action Plan (NAP) on Child Labour in Myanmar

The International Labour Organization (ILO) is providing assistance to the Government of Myanmar in formulating a comprehensive National Action Plan on the Elimination of the Worst Forms of Child Labour (NAP). This activity will contribute to the national efforts and the goals of the ILO’s Global Action Plan against the worst forms of child labour (WFCL), within the framework of the ILO Convention on the Worst Forms of Child Labour (No. 182). This NAP will target the worst forms of child labour (WFCL) as a priority, while aiming at the elimination of all child labour in the long term.

The purpose of the workshop is to present brief background information on child labour in the country; the rationale and overall objectives of a NAP; different options for building and framing a NAP; and results of bilateral discussions with different stakeholders on the prospective NAP in Myanmar and to facilitate a joint discussion on how to proceed on building a NAP in Myanmar including discussion on the establishment of a drafting committee.
