The International Year was unanimously adopted in a UN General Assembly resolution in 2019. The main aim of the year is to urge governments to do what is necessary to achieve Target 8.7  of the UN Sustainable Development Goals  (SDGs). Almost half of all child labour happens in Africa (72 million children), followed by Asia and the Pacific (62 million).
70% of children in child labour work in agriculture, mainly in subsistence and commercial farming and herding livestock.https://lnkd.in/dvNAQ8Bhttps://lnkd.in/dVsDCdVInternational Labour Organization
