Reducing child labour in agriculture through decent youth employment

Description

In
2021, which marks the International Year for the Elimination of Child Labour,
FAO is strongly reaffirming its commitment to end child labour in the
agricultural sector.

In Guatemala, rural youth face
challenges in accessing decent employment opportunities in agriculture. Despite
being of legal working age, many rural youth aged 14-17 are engaged in
hazardous work. FAO is working with producer cooperatives and businesses to
turn child labour into decent employment, promoting safe working conditions,
education and training.
