Child Labour in commercial agriculture in Africa

Child Labour in commercial agriculture in Africa

This paper seeks to review briefly the available evidence on the extent and types of child labour in the commercial agriculture sector in the Africa region. Information and data are included from case-studies carried out on the child labour situation in commercial agriculture in Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, United Republic of Tanzania and Zimbabwe. The purpose of these studies was to document contrasting conditions and hazards of child labour in commercial agriculture, to analyse the relevance and efficacy of measures already taken to improve working conditions among children and to reduce the use of child labour, and to identify additional feasible measures and activities.
