Child Rights in Côte d'Ivoire

Côte d'Ivoire faces deeply rooted issues contributing to the prevalence of child labour. The nation's high poverty rate, particularly acute in rural areas with 57% of the population, hinders economic escape for Ivorian planters earning a mere USD 0.50 daily. Despite a commendable 90% primary education enrolment rate, less than half of school-aged children transition to secondary school, indicating a significant drop-out challenge. Gender disparities and low educational quality exacerbate this issue, while societal norms and widespread cultural acceptance further perpetuate child labour. Beyond these factors, the country contends with challenges in peace building, flood preparedness, and intra-community conflicts, all of which compound efforts to address the root causes of child labour.
