This publication is a result of the excellent collaboration between the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean of the International Labour Organization (ILO).
The Regional Initiative proposes a Policy Acceleration Framework that includes strategies that reinforce the social protection and education systems focused on the prevention and eradication of child labour, coordinating the intervention with the ministries or Secretaries of Labour. This framework is based on two areas of intervention: 1) protection to remove children and adolescents from child labour and the restoration of their rights; and 2) prevention through actions designed to identify and intervene in a timely manner to interrupt the trajectory of child labour.
The present study, which is part of the second area, seeks to provide empirical evidence that serves as a basis to establish priorities in national and subnational policies aimed at the prevention and elimination of child labour. To this end, the ILO Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean and ECLAC jointly developed the Child Labour Risk Identification Model, a methodology that, based on the statistical information available in the countries (surveys, censuses and/or administrative records) allows, on the one hand, to identify the territories most vulnerable to child labour and, on the other, to estimate the weight of various factors associated in order to determine which multisectoral actions are more effective in interrupting the trajectory of child labour and, in the medium term, reduce the indicator in a sustained manner.
