"Moving towards a child labour free Jordan" - A collection of emerging good practices

International Labour Organization


Good practices developed under one project to combat child labour can inform the design and implementation of similar initiatives in other contexts. These good practices from ILO-related projects aim to document what worked well in creating conditions to prevent or eliminate child labour in Jordan. The examples range from developing a national strategy to combat child labour, documenting the prevalence of child labour, and facilitating communication between government ministries, to devising innovative approaches to address unique situations. Features of each good practice may be transferable to other national and regional contexts.

Over a two-week period in November and December 2015, a consultant hired by the ILO interviewed 30 people from the government, international organizations, NGOs and the private sector, as well as 15 children who were either current or former child labourers. These interviews sought to identify and document good practices that are relevant, effective, ethical, innovative, sustainable, efficient, and eligible for replication.
