World Day Against Child Labour: Advances on Child Labour Measurement in the Agricultural Sector

Within the framework of the ICABR Conference on “Disruptive Innovations, Value Chains, and Rural Development”, The Italian Centre for International Development and the Understanding Children's Work Project will lead a session about child labour in the agricultural sector, to properly mark the World Day Against Child Labour, which is celebrated every year on June, 12.

Each year on June, 12, the World Day Against Child Labour (WDACL) highlights the plight of child labourers and what can be done to help them.

To mark this occasion, the session "World Day Against Child Labour: Advances on Child Labour Measurement in the Agricultural Sector" will present and discuss key challenges and interventions for addressing child labour in agriculture.

Child labour is mainly an agricultural issue. Worldwide 60 percent of all child labourers in the age group 5-17 years work in agriculture. This amounts to over 98 million girls and boys. Agriculture is one of the three most dangerous sectors in terms of work-related fatalities, non-fatal accidents, and occupational diseases. About 59 percent of all children in hazardous work aged 5–17 are in agriculture.

Towards Sustainable Migration

Coping with large migration flows in low income and middle income countries

The recent past has seen large movements of migrants and refugees, and the number of international migrants has reached an all-time high. The majority of refugees are currently hosted in low- and middle- income countries. Moreover, refugees and migrants stay in host countries for prolonged periods, as crises are protracted and migrants seldom return home soon after displacement.

Hosting countries, therefore, face the challenge of addressing the needs of a large flow of refugees over a long period of time. In this report, we focus on the challenges that low- and middle- income countries face in dealing with large flows of refugees and migrants and, especially, on the interventions that can support their efforts in providing refugees with access to social protection. In particular, we review different approaches to the provision of social protection in response to large flows of refugees and migrants, with particular attention to the integration between emergency and development approaches and to the integration with hosting communities.
