Liberia: Government to Eliminate Child Labor by 2030



According to the Liberian government, it has begun the process by the development of a National Action Plan (NAP) Document aimed at addressing child labor issues in Liberia from 2018-2030.
“Such, plans are underway for full endorsement of said document by cabinet which sets the platform for addressing child labor through mainstreaming in all sectors of the economy,” Labor Minister Moses Kollie said Tuesday.
Liberia as a member State of the International Labor Organization (ILO), ratified ILO Convention 182 in June 2003 which calls for the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labor.
The ILO Convention 138 sets the minimum age for admission to work and recommends that all ratifying countries develop a list of risk as key steps to establish a legal framework that will enable children to participate in labor market.
Speaking Tuesday at the official opening of the Legislative Reform Committee Validation conference on the hazardous list for Liberian Children, Labor Minister Moses Kollie said the development of Hazardous list is unique because it will inform the process leading to the formulation of a regulation on child labor in Liberia.
