This report is an informational brief for business stakeholders interested in how best to understand and engage with child labor issues in Myanmar’s garment manufacturing sector.

Due to widespread poverty and weak labor law enforcement, underage workers are common in many industries. Investors and buyers need to not only manage legal and reputational risk, but also harness the potential for international investment and supply chains to contribute to a better future for Myanmar’s young workers. This report outlines a child-rights-based approach and recommendations for prevention and remediation of child labor.

The research was funded by the International Development and Research Centre and took place in parallel with BSR's Myanmar Responsible Sourcing Working Group activities during 2015-2016.
