Selon l'Enquête nationale sur la situation de l'emploi et du travail des enfants (2013), réalisée avec l'appui de l'OIT, en Côte d'Ivoire, 28,2 % (un peu moins de deux millions d'enfants) des enfants de 5 à 17 ans sont engagés dans des activités économiques.

Les secteurs les plus touchés sont l'agriculture (53,4 % des enfants) et les services (35,6 %). Environ 20 % des enfants (toujours dans la tranche d’âge 5-17 ans) travaillent, dont les trois quarts ont moins de 14 ans.

L'enquête nationale sur les pires formes de travail des enfants (2011) réalisée par l'Institut national de statistique (INS) a révélé que 73,5 % des garçons travaillent dans l'agriculture contre 35,2 % des filles.

En Côte d’Ivoire, ACCEL Africa se focalisera sur les chaînes de valeurs du Cacao et de l’Or.
