|Description:||Global Child Labour Conference "Towards a world without child labour Mapping the road to 2016"|
|Subject:||The year 2010 is 10 years after the coming into force of ILO Convention 182 on the Worst Forms of Child Labour (WFCL), the most widely-ratified international labour convention, and it is 6 years ahead of the global target of eliminating the WFCL. While the global movement has achieved much progress in reducing the incidence of child labour, efforts must be stepped up if we are to deliver the commitment of a world free of the worst forms of child labour by 2016. In order to meet that challenge, the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment, in close collaboration with the ILO (and in cooperation with UNICEF and the World Bank), is organizing a global conference on child labour to be held in The Hague (The Netherlands) on 10 and 11 May 2010. The conference objectives are: - to achieve rapidly universal ratification of ILO Conventions Nos. 138 and 182; - to deliver the commitment to take immediate and effective measures to end the worst forms of child labour as a matter of urgency; and - to agree on significantly intensified efforts to reach the 2016 goal laid down in the Global Action Plan.
