COVID-19 and child labour in Lebanon

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a devastating impact on children, especially girls, their families and communities. 

While one might think that child labour may decrease due to government restrictions, financial desperation is likely to lead to an increase in child labour in the medium term. 

This briefing paper developed by Plan International Lebanon outlines the potential risks that girls and boys engaged in child labour and those at-risk might face due to the lockdown and the current economic situation. It also includes some key relevant programmatic recommendations.
