Break-out session D: Monitoring of child labour

What is the role of monitoring in the elimination of child labour? What are the lessons learned so far in effective monitoring of child labour and what is the role of audits and the role of technology? Monitoring of child labour has evolved from monitoring the supply chain to ensure there are no children working to awareness raising, referral to services and tracking the individual child, sometimes also beyond the supply chain. This requires the involvement of many different actors.

In this session we aim to get an insight into the experience of three sectors: the cocoa sector, the hazelnuts and the coffee. Experienced monitoring initiatives such as the Fair Labor Association, Rainforest Alliance and the International Cocoa Initiative will share what they think is key to effective monitoring and will ask your ideas for overcoming some of the problems they face in an interactive engaging way.

If you would like to share your ideas or if you would like to learn more how others are doing this, please join this session.
