    Le double défi du travail des enfants et de la marginalisation scolaire dans la région de la CEDEAO - Vue d'ensemble

    01 July 2014

    Dans le cadre des efforts mis en œuvre pour faire face à la situation d’urgence actuelle, les gouvernements et les institutions régionales ont élaboré la Politique de l’Enfant de la CEDEAO et son Plan d’action stratégique, le Plan d’action régional Afrique de l’Ouest visant à éliminer le travail des enfants, en particulier les pires formes, ainsi que la Déclaration d’Accra du Symposium CEDEAO/BIT sur le Plan d’action régional Afrique de l’Ouest. Ces différents documents traduisent l’intention des pays d’éliminer le travail des enfants et de mettre en place un cadre essentiel dans lequel inscrire les efforts qui permettront d’atteindre cet objectif. L’OIT a produit le présent Rapport afin de faciliter la transposition de ces plans en actions concrètes. Son but premier est de constituer la base factuelle nécessaire à la conception et au ciblage des interventions spécifiques dirigées contre le travail des enfants. Il réunit ainsi les informations disponibles les plus récentes tirées de diverses enquêtes nationales sur les ménages, afin de brosser un tableau détaillé de la question du travail des enfants et du défi connexe de la marginalisation scolaire dans la région de la CEDEAO.
