Combating the worst forms of child labour on West African cocoa farms

Launched in 2008 at the initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Development Co-operation of Belgium, in collaboration with several development co-operations agencies, the SWAC secretariat is co-ordinating collaborative work on “child labour in the West African cocoa sector”. Bringing together key stakeholders (West African governments, interested OECD countries, private sector representatives, West African producer associations, NGOs, etc.) and regional institutions, this imitative aims to build upon existing experiences and best practices and promote a complementary regional approach on combating the worst forms of child labour. 38%, Ghana 21%, Cameroon 5% and Nigeria 5%). Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana are the world’s two largest producers, representing 80% of total West African production. Cocoa is also produced in Togo, Sierra Leone and Liberia albeit in much smaller quantities.
