World Day Against Child Labour 2021
This year’s World Day Against Child Labour focuses on action taken for the 2021 International Year for the Elimination of Child Labour. It is the first World Day since the universal ratification of the ILO’s Convention No. 182 on the Worst Forms of Child Labour, and takes place at time when the COVID-19 crisis threatens to reverse years of progress in tackling the problem.
The International Year was adopted in the 2019 UN General Assembly. A main aim of the year is to urge governments to do what is necessary to achieve SDG Target 8.7.
