The ITCILO organizes a unique global forum on “Child labour and working conditions in small-scale mining”
In conjunction with the International Labour Organization's CARING Gold Mining Project, funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, the first ever Inter-Regional Knowledge-Sharing Forum to discuss issues of child labour and working conditions in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) was held in Manila from 28 to 30 May 2019.
The forum was attended by 75 representatives of governments, employers’ and workers’ organizations, international NGOs, civil society organizations, miners’ groups and their communities, and ASGM supply chain actors.
Also present were representatives of countries where child labour and decent working conditions in ASGM remain a concern, such as Colombia, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Guyana, Indonesia, Mali, Mongolia, Nigeria and the Philippines.
