In 2016, Grenada made a minimal advancement in efforts to prevent the worst forms of child labor. The Government joined the Regional Initiative to eliminate the worst forms of child labor by 2020. Although research found no evidence that child labor, including its worst forms, exists in Grenada, no study of child labor has been done to confirm this. The Government's ability to prevent children from becoming engaged in the worst forms of child labor is limited because existing laws do not comprehensively prohibit child trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children. In addition, there is a lack of prohibitions against children's involvement in hazardous work and illicit activities, including the production and trafficking of drugs.
