World Day Against Child Labour
Joint message from the ILO and UNICEF to mark the World Day Against Child Labour
The 2020 World Day Against Child Labour focuses on the impact of COVID-19 on Child Labour, while looking forward to the International Year on the Elimination of Child Labour, 2021. On the occasion of the World Day, a joint ILO-UNICEF paper entitled “COVID-19 and child labour: A time of crisis, a time to act” has been released. The paper looks at some of the main ways through which the pandemic is likely to affect progress towards the eradication of child labour.
