Every day, an estimated 160 million children are forced to work, often in dangerous conditions.

This year’s UN World Day Against Child Labour is calling for better social protections, so parents aren’t forced to send their youngsters to work.

The ILO and UNICEF say increased poverty could push another 8.9 million children into the workforce by the end of 2022.

So what’s needed to end the practice?

Presenter: Laura Kyle
