Understanding children's work country report in Bangladesh

The Government of Bangladesh has accorded the fight against child labour a prominent place in its national development agenda and has made a number of important commitments in this area.

There is a wide range of on-going Government, bilateral, multilateral and NGO interventions of relevance to child labour in Bangladesh.

But important gaps still persist. The critical challenge moving forward is to extend current efforts within a unified strategic framework to ensure that they effectively address child labour.

The current report aims to help inform national efforts against child labour. The report presents evidence concerning the extent, nature, causes and consequences of child labour, and, on this basis, identifies key policy priorities moving forward.
