Turkmenistan and the International Labor Organisation (ILO) recently adopted a road map for cooperation for 2024-2025 to prevent the use of forced labour while harvesting cotton.

It offers mechanisms for hired labourers to lodge complaints regarding coercion or extortion, and sets a minimum wage for pickers.

The key aim is the legislation of a presidential decree on measures for organised cotton harvesting to eliminate the use of forced labour, a news outlet in Turkmenistan reported.

A system of prohibition and penalties is expected to be introduced to stop the practice of forced mobilisation or extortion in cotton harvesting.

The ministries of foreign affairs, interior, justice and labour and social security; the supreme court; the prosecutor general’s office; and the ombudsman institute have been tasked with implementing the document’s recommendations.
