This infographic from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) illustrates the typical story of a child agricultural laborer whose education and well-being are interrupted by protracted crises, food insecurity, and natural hazards. The three scenarios are illustrated by images representing armed conflict, drought, locusts, flooding, and hurricanes; each is paired with an image of how sustainable agriculture and food security interventions—such as the creation of water points for animals, agricultural pest prevention, and disaster preparedness—can provide solutions to prevent child labor.
The one-page graphic is suitable as an educational tool for storytelling in low-literacy settings and accompanies the FAO guidance note, Child Labour in Agriculture in Protracted Crises, Fragile and Humanitarian Contexts, which is designed to guide fieldwork and policy for those who work with at-risk children in food and crisis relief programs.
