On the pledge:
On 21 April 2021, France expressed its wish to become an Alliance 8.7 Pathfinder Country to the ILO Director-General. France wishes to strengthen its commitment to eliminating child labour, forced labour, human trafficking and contemporary forms of slavery. In addition, France wishes to hold a meeting of all French stakeholders, public authorities, social partners, business networks and associations to draw up an ambitious national action plan as soon as possible.
On the implementation:
France is currently planning a meeting of all French stakeholders through five dedicated working groups (business networks; social partners; international action; associations; French administrative bodies). Their discussions must allow the mapping of the existing framework and all the actions carried out by France to achieve target 8.7 of the sustainable development goals, in particular the elimination of child labour.
On the impact:
Works carried out in the context of the application for Alliance 8.7 Pathfinder Country status are intended to improve the synergy and impact of the action France is taking against child labour, in its territory and around the world, based on its legislative framework.
