    In line with “Upgrading the Technical Agriculture Education System in Lebanon OSRO/601/LEB/NET” FAO project’s Strategic Objectives SO3: "Reduce rural poverty" and SO5: “Increase the resilience of livelihoods to threats and crises”, FAO prepared - with the support and collaboration of AVSI and WARD and based on ILO/FAO publication entitled “ Child Labor in Agriculture in Lebanon - A guide for workers in agriculture"- this digital material for the online Accelerated Agricultural Vocational Trainings, based on the Accelerated Vocational Training Curriculum for Lebanese and non-Lebanese Youth (aged 14 to 25 years old). This curriculum aims to train young people and acquaint them with the areas related to workers’ occupational health and safety. Improving occupational safety and health and eliminating children's exposure to hazardous work enables agricultural producers to legally employ young people from 14 to 17 years of age. And thus, this course will prepare youth to enter the agricultural labor market aware and knowledgeable about the safety measures they need to take, especially that this age group is considered among children (until the age of 18 years).

    Agriculture is by far the largest sector where child labour is found and one of the most dangerous in terms of fatalities, accidents and occupational diseases. Almost 60 percent of girls and boys (aged 5–17 years) in hazardous work are found in agriculture, historically and traditionally an under-regulated sector and one in which regulation enforcement is also difficult in many countries. Livestock forms a considerable subsector within agriculture, with global demand for animal products rising. The livestock sector is one of the fastest growing segments of the agricultural economy and contributes 40 percent of the global value of agricultural output, according to the FAO State of Food and Agriculture report (SOFA, 2009). Furthermore, livestock represents at least a partial source of income and food security for 70 percent of the world´s 880 million rural poor who live on less than USD 1.00 a day (Neely et al., 2009). Within rural environments, livestock keeping has hi storical, cultural and traditional roots, and the involvement of children is very common. Age-appropriate tasks that do not expose children to conditions that are likely to cause them harm, that do not have negative health or development consequences and do not interfere with a child´s compulsory schooling and leisure time can be a normal part of growing up. Such acceptable work can teach a child certain skills and may have inherent social, educational and cultural value. However, much o f the work children do in the livestock sector can be categorized as child labour: it is likely to be hazardous, to interfere with a child’s education, or to be harmful to the child’s health or physical, mental, spiritual, moral or social development.
