The Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor, and Human Trafficking (OCFT) in the Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) within U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) has invested in programs over the last 25 years to eliminate child labor and forced labor. To guide future investments in these areas, OCFT emphasizes monitoring and evaluating the performance of its current and past programs, identifying challenges and best practices, and communicating key findings and effective and sustainable strategies to stakeholders.

To learn more from its programming, OCFT commissioned a study to synthesize findings from performance evaluations and monitoring data from 19 ILAB-funded projects implemented from 1999 through 2021 to reduce child labor and/or forced labor in the cocoa and fishing/seafood sectors.
