Title: Reducing child labour in Guatemala through decent youth employment

A new UN report warns that that global progress against child labour has stalled for the first time since the last two decades. The COVID-19 crisis is likely to push millions more children into child labour unless urgent mitigation measures are taken.

According to the ILO-UNICEF report namely Child labour: 2020 Global estimates, trends and the road ahead released today ( 10 June), around 160 million children – 63 million girls and 97 million boys – were in child labour globally at the beginning of 2020, accounting for almost 1 in 10 of all children worldwide. An increase of 8 million since 2016. A further 8.9 million children will be in child labour by end of 2020 as a result of rising poverty driven by the pandemic.

More than 70 percent of all children in child labour – 112 million in total - are in agriculture, representing and increase by 4 million since 2016. These children engaging in child labour in crop production, livestock, forestry, fisheries or aquaculture, often work long hours and perform hazardous tasks.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is dedicated to eliminating child labour in agriculture.

In Guatemala FAO works with partners to reduce child labour and rural poverty by promoting education and safe youth employment in agri-food systems.
