Meeting

Organized during the 14th annual meeting of the ILO Child Labour Platform, the conversation aims to foster understanding of the interlinkages between climate change and labour rights, particularly child labour, and to provide an overview of what the ILO is doing to address this challenge. Participants will be able to share knowledge and learn about good practices among existing due diligence initiatives on climate change and child labour in supply chains. The session also seeks to inspire collaborative action and provide participants with the opportunity to identify key partners and stakeholders such as trade unions, government officials, and local businesses and communities, with whom multinationals can collaborate.
