Regional Consultation on Alliance 8.7 - West and North Africa

The first sub regional consultation on SDG 8.7 in Africa was organized by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, from 8-9 September 2016 in the presence of Ms Dominique Ouattara, First Lady of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire and Mr Aeneas Chuma, Assistant Director-General of the ILO and Regional Director for Africa.

Some 80 delegates from a dozen of African member States attended the high-level meeting to discuss and agree on how best to join forces particularly in West and North Africa to end forced labour, modern slavery and human trafficking by 2030 and to end child labour in all its forms by 2025.
