PACE recommendations for Alternative Pathways: Digital skills training & employment opportunities

  • Child labour
These recommendations are the product of extensive value chain and labour market assessments conducted on the tantalum sector in the North and South Kivu regions of DRC as part of the PACE programme. They include considerations of broader implications for other fragile contexts where children are engaged in, or at risk of, the worst forms of child labour. PACE research identified the lack of economic opportunity as a core contributor to worst forms of child labour in DRC. Not simply because mines are actively trying to exploit children, but due to a number of contextual variables, social norms and the lack of suitable alternatives – either within education or safer employment.
