Cambodia | Conference on the Sustained Eradication of Child Labour

Matthew Rendall, Senior Partner at SokSiphana&associates (a member of ZICO Law) will be participating in the IV Global Conference on the Sustained Eradication of Child Labour, on 14-16 November 2017 in Argentina.

Matthew will be joining the panel discussion, Crisis and conflict: Protecting the most vulnerable, on 15 November. This panel will explore successful mechanism for public policy and international and national cooperation as well as areas for further focus, including building on existing national mechanism and bolstering collaboration and multilateral responses. He will also join the Alliance 8.7 Knowledge Platform; discussing efforts to drive consistency in data production and research.

The IV Global Conference’s main objective is to contribute further to consolidating global commitment to joint efforts to accelerate the pace of the elimination of child labor, in order to secure its end by 2025 as required in Target 8.7 of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Argentinian Government has broadened the scope of the IV Global Conference to cover the eradication of forced labour. Linked to the struggle against both child labour and forced labour, the IV Global Conference will also undertake an analysis and discussion of active social and economic inclusion policies that promote the creation of quality youth employment.
