In late September, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) released the Twentieth Edition of the Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor, which collects information on the prevalence and nature of child labour in 131 countries and territories. In addition to data on individual States and territories, the Twentieth Edition notes global trends, including an overall rise in child labour from 2016 to 2020 as reported by UNICEF and the ILO; a decline in funding for projects designed to address child labour over the past decade; and a continued increase in gaps in social protections to mitigate vulnerability. The research also recommends a number of effective actions to eliminate child labour through legal frameworks, enforcement, social programs, coordination and policies.
