There are still some 152 million children in the world who are involved in some form of child labour. Of these, a large number are employed in the informal sector, while 72.5 million children are involved in worst form of child labour. Usually, the number of child labour is higher in economically poor countries. In the context of Nepal, about 47.8 percent of children are still involved in some form of work. Even though the latest data are not available, the figures for 2014 show that 27.4 percent of children are employed as child labour. Of the children involved in work, 45.45 percent did not even go to school. The figures show that the rate of child labour in Nepal is high and alarming. This is even worse in Karnali province lagging behind in all indicators. The number of children working in hazardous areas such as transportation, construction, tourism is also significant. The use of available means and resources for ending child labour, implementation of existing policies have not been effective due to lack of commitment and will power. According to the sectoral data, policies and plans have been formulated to tackle the child labour, but there has been no substantial effort by government agencies against child labour. In fact, the government formulates the plans, but the implementation does not seem to be effective. Particularly child labour resulted from economic poverty, lacking access to quality education, social acceptance, weak implementation of laws, conflict and changing family environment, modern information technology and misuse of social media, lacking attention by stakeholders and political commitment etc. Despite the government's international commitment against child labour and the formulation of various policies, plans and laws, no significant achievement has been realized in this area.
