ipcclaTo mark the World Day Against Child Labour on June 12, members of the International Partnership for Cooperation on Child Labour in Agriculture which includes the IUF, have launched a joint website (only in English so far) to bring together information and news on elimination of child labour in the sector.

A new ILO report, Paving the Way to Decent Work for Young People, also launched  for World Day, addresses the twin challenges of eliminating child labour and ensuring decent work for young people. The report confirms that many children and young people are working in hazardous conditions in agriculture.
