The Child Labour Programme of Action (CLPA) is South Africa’s roadmap towards the prevention, reduction and eventual elimination of child labour. The CLPA was first adopted in 2003 after extensive consultation within government, with a wide range of organisations outside government and with groups of teenage children involved in different forms of child labour. The Programme set out specific actions to be taken and assigned responsibility for these actions. The second phase of the CLPA, which was adopted by Cabinet on 4 February 2009, covers the financial years 2008/09 to 2012/13. The third phase of the CLPA will cover the period April 2013 to March 2017.
