Promoting youth employment and reducing child labour in agriculture

Published by FAO,

This online course by FAO presents strategies to strengthen the impact of child labour reduction and youth employment policies and programmes by considering the two issues together. First, it builds an understanding of the differences as well as linkages between child labour and youth employment. Then, it highlights concrete measures to improve policy and programme coherence and support for young people to access decent opportunities in agriculture. The course is intended for: agricultural producers and their organizations; small and large-scale agribusinesses; agricultural policy makers and advisors; those working in NGOs, and public or private sector working on agricultural value chains or with rural youth. This course was created by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in collaboration with the International Labour Organization (ILO). It was co-funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Please find more information in this factsheet.
