Elimination of Child Labour: ILO commences training on implementation of national advocacy strategy in Nigeria

THE International Labour Organisation (ILO), has commenced a one-week training of media practitioners and journalists on the implementation of a national advocacy strategy to improve nationwide reporting on child labour in Nigeria.

The training is a follow-up to the development of a national advocacy strategy, by the Accelerating Action for the Elimination of Child Labour in Supply Chains in Africa project (ACCEL Africa), which was launched in Nigeria in May 2019.

The ACCEL Africa project through a specialist consultant has developed the national advocacy strategy for the elimination of child labour in Nigeria.

Against this background, the ILO has gathered Nigerian media professionals to participate in the training targeted at media practitioners and journalists on ‘effective child labour reporting and implementation of the national advocacy strategy on the elimination of child labour.’

With a theme: ‘Journalists and Media Professionals Training on the Implementation of the National Advocacy Strategy on the Elimination of Child Labour in Nigeria,’ the training, which commenced on Monday, 16 November in Abuja would end on Friday, 20 November 2020.

The ILO through the support of the Government of the Netherlands, in May 2019, launched the Accelerating Action for the Elimination of Child Labour in Supply Chains in Africa project (ACCEL Africa) in Nigeria.

The project is built on the ILO’s extensive experience in implementing initiatives on the elimination of child labour; while it draws upon the experience and lessons learned from the ILO’s work with the tripartite constituents at global, regional, national and local levels, the private sector as well as other actors along global supply chains.

To this end, and the need for advocacy and communication activities to be implemented at the community, sector, state and national level, the ACCEL Africa project has engaged the service of a specialist consultant to develop a national advocacy strategy for the elimination of child labour in Nigeria. A professor of communication will be facilitating the training.
