This survey, developed by ICI, allows to assess the prevalence, intensity and context of child labour and hazardous child labour in cocoa growing communities in West Africa. The survey tool is composed of two questionnaires:
- A household questionnaire capturing the household’s overall socio-economic situation and the household composition
- A child questionnaire capturing the child’s engagement in economic activities
The questionnaires have been developed and field tested, based on existing good practice. The are available in English and French.
The information collected allows to identify whether children are in child labour or in hazardous child labour according to ILO conventions No. 138 and No. 182. Questions on children’s work activities are tailored to the national legislative frameworks for hazardous tasks illegal for children for Ghana in the English version, and for Côte d’Ivoire in the French version.
