The FLA is running a project with an objective to design and pilot a comprehensive, sustainable program for agriculture companies to reduce child labor and forced labor in the hazelnut supply chain in Turkey.
Child labor is a countrywide issue in Turkey, and governmental action is required for sustainable progress and a permanent solution. For the purposes of this project, efforts will be made to keep the local level government authorities informed of the intervention models and engage them actively in the implementation at the field level, wherever possible. The project will also seek to raise awareness to representative of local labor directorates.
