Understanding Children's Work in Guatemala - Report on child labour
Author(s) : UCW
Abstract : The current report was developed under the aegis of UCW project activities in Guatemala. It provides an overview of the child labour phenomenon in Guatemala - its extent and nature, its determinants, its consequences on health and education, and national responses to it. The report serves two important UCW project objectives in the country. First, it helps provide a common analytical understanding of child labour, that can be used to inform the current activities of the three partner agencies and Government, and that can be used to develop joint interagency strategies for future co-operation with the Government in the field of child labour. Second, through close involvement of local counterparts in its development, the paper contributes to a broader effort to build national capacity in using data for policy development in the child labour field. The report is the product of a collaborative effort of the National Statistical Institute, concerned Government ministries, local researcher institutes and ILO, UNICEF and the World Bank. The statistical information presented in the report is drawn primarily from a national living conditions survey conducted in 2000 (Encuesta de Condiciones de Vida (ENCOVI) 2000). The survey involved a stratified sample of 7,276 households and a total of 38,000 persons. The report also draws on a number of smaller-scale studies, qualitative as well as quantitative, Government and NGO reports, agency documents and other information sources.
