2021 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:

Minimal Advancement

In 2021, Tuvalu made minimal advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. The Government of Tuvalu published the results from the Tuvalu Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey 2019–2020, which provides the country's most recent and comprehensive data on child labor. However, although research is limited, there is evidence that children in Tuvalu engage in child labor in fishing and domestic work. The government has not specified, by national law or regulation, the types of hazardous work prohibited for children, leaving children vulnerable to the worst forms of child labor. In addition, Tuvalu lacks information on labor law and criminal law enforcement efforts.
