30 Nov-Dec 2019 - The ILO estimates that India and Bangladesh are home to 10.7 million child laborers. A new research project, led by UNICEF Innocenti, aims to identify effective educational strategies to address child labour in these countries. To kick-start the project, an inception workshop was held in New Delhi in November 2019. The workshop's objective is to establish current evidence and inform future direction for research on educational strategies to address child labour in India and Bangladesh. Bringing together 24 experts on the topics of child labour and education, as well as donors (DFID) and programme partners (ILO, UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia, IDS, UNICEF country offices), the workshop represents the main inception activity for the DFID-funded research project “Supporting DFID’s Asia Regional Child Labour Programme: Evidence on Educational Strategies to Address Child Labour in South Asia". The project is carried out by UNICEF Innocenti, as part of the broader DFID “Asia Regional Child Labour Programme”.
