Regional Integrated Resources Center on Child Labour: CLIC-Africa
The global fight against child labour has stalled since 2016 and the number of children in child labour could reach 168.9 million by the end of 2022.
The ILO recently established this Regional Integrated Resource Center on Child Labour (CLIC-Africa) to support and facilitate the development of national capacity, ownership and commitment on child labour issues. It is a clearinghouse for information on child labour issues. Indeed, according to the global estimates 2020 of the number of children in child labour, 86.6 million out of 160 million children in child labour worldwide live in sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, almost half of these children do hazardous work.
CLIC-Africa aims to:
- produce training and other technical papers, as well as advocacy materials
- disseminate them with a view to equipping government, employer, worker representatives and partners to facilitate the effective implementation of NAPs
- facilitating knowledge sharing on child labour and related issues, including national and regional good practices.
- provide technical support for the mobilization of national and donor resources for action against child labour, and
- promote integrated support by ILO units on issues relating to child labour and other decent work deficits.
