The primary aim of the study was to provide baseline estimates of prevalence of forced labour among children (aged 10-17 years) and adults (aged 18 and over) working in the cocoa sector in Ghana and Cote d’ Ivoire, as well as updated estimates of the number of children (aged 10 to 17 years) exposed to child labour.

An estimated 891,500 children aged 10 to 17 years worked in cocoa production in medium and high cocoa producing areas of Cote d’Ivoire in the year prior to the survey.

In Ghana, an estimated 708,400 children aged 10 to 17 years worked in cocoa agriculture in medium and high cocoa-growing areas in the year prior to the survey.
