      • Audience

        The course is tailored to meet the information needs of:

        • agricultural policy-makers and advisors;
        • agricultural programmer designers and implementers;
        • 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. The content of this course will therefore also be important for a wide range of further stakeholders working in areas such as labour, education, health, social protection, poverty reduction, rural development and large-scale investments and further themes.
