Forced & child labor to be addressed at PLENARY MEETING

Sep '10
Cotton remains one of the most important fibers in the global textile market today, and commercial enterprises in the cotton and textile value chain are under increased scrutiny to ensure that their products' lifecycles uphold social and labor standards.

Please join us for a morning meeting to discuss how stakeholders - including cotton producers, ginners, traders, spinners, apparel companies, NGOs, government agencies and international organizations ¬can work together to address the root causes of forced labor and child labor at the farm level.

Side Meeting to the International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) 69th Plenary Meeting Lubbock, Texas.
September 23, 10:30am -12pm.
14th Floor, Overton Hotel.

The root Causes of forced labor and child labor in cotton production are varied and complex. This meeting will provide a forum in which stakeholders can present their views on the extent of problems in the cotton sector and on how to best address and remediate the drivers of exploitation of labor.

Special attention will be paid to the distinction between “children's work” versus “child labor”. Discussion will be focused on specific actions stakeholders can take, both individually and collectively, to properly identify and subsequently address forced labor and child labor.

Brief case studies with examples of best practices will be presented. Adequate time will be given for all participants to express their views and discuss possible solutions. The meeting will conclude with proposed next steps and recommendations for action by governments and the private sector.
