Harvesting the Future - Jasmine in Egypt

Issues Child Labor Fair Compensation Health Safety & Environment

The Fair Labor Association, the International Labour Organization (ILO) office in Egypt, and more than 15 national and international producers and purchasers of jasmine and jasmine derivatives and products are working together to promote child protection and decent working conditions in the jasmine sector in Egypt. The Government of Egypt and several local civil society organizations also are active partners in the project.

Joint efforts to improve labor rights and working conditions in the jasmine supply chain include strategies to promote fair compensation and build the economic resilience of families; strengthen child protection measures and improve children’s access to education and childcare; improve human rights due diligence systems at the processor level; and generate support for legal and policy initiatives, including social protection measures.
