    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.

    Le double défi du travail des enfants et de la marginalisation scolaire dans la région de la CEDEAO - Vue d'ensemble

    01 July 2014

    Dans le cadre des efforts mis en œuvre pour faire face à la situation d’urgence actuelle, les gouvernements et les institutions régionales ont élaboré la Politique de l’Enfant de la CEDEAO et son Plan d’action stratégique, le Plan d’action régional Afrique de l’Ouest visant à éliminer le travail des enfants, en particulier les pires formes, ainsi que la Déclaration d’Accra du Symposium CEDEAO/BIT sur le Plan d’action régional Afrique de l’Ouest. Ces différents documents traduisent l’intention des pays d’éliminer le travail des enfants et de mettre en place un cadre essentiel dans lequel inscrire les efforts qui permettront d’atteindre cet objectif. L’OIT a produit le présent Rapport afin de faciliter la transposition de ces plans en actions concrètes. Son but premier est de constituer la base factuelle nécessaire à la conception et au ciblage des interventions spécifiques dirigées contre le travail des enfants. Il réunit ainsi les informations disponibles les plus récentes tirées de diverses enquêtes nationales sur les ménages, afin de brosser un tableau détaillé de la question du travail des enfants et du défi connexe de la marginalisation scolaire dans la région de la CEDEAO.
