G11 - Improving the detection and mitigation of forced labour in agricultural supply chains

G11 - Improving the detection and mitigation of forced labour in agricultural supply chains

Despite many standards systems incorporating ILO agreements and conventions, rates for detection of forced labour remain low. This ISEAL Innovations Fund-supported project aims to identify new methods of detecting farms where the risk of forced labour is high, and offer effective solutions. Jessica Chalmers, Programme and Partnerships Manager at the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) explains how SAN and partner UTZ will be leveraging their networks across Kenya, Guatemala and India to produce an industry-wide methodology to detect and address forced labour.
