- agricultural researchers;
- agricultural statisticians.
For example, in ministries of agriculture, livestock, forestry, and fisheries; agricultural producers’ organizations, including cooperatives; or FAO.
While the course is tailored to the information needs of these stakeholders, much of the content will also be highly relevant to others such as agricultural workers, employers and their organizations.
Eliminating child labour in agriculture will need a holistic and multi-stakeholder approach.
