This proposed project seeks to contribute to national and sub-regional initiatives to combat the worst forms of child labour in West Africa. It has two main components: the first will support national efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labour in Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana and Nigeria, identified as the project core countries while the second aims at mobilizing sub-regional policy makers and improving sub-regional cooperation for the elimination of the worst forms of child labour among all fifteen member States of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). By linking these two components and through its strategies to foster knowledge sharing, the project will enable the project’s three core countries to serve as models and learning laboratories for the benefit of decision makers and other stakeholders across the sub-region.
