The project is implemented within the framework of the commitments assumed by Mexico as a Pioneer Country of Alliance 8.7, with the aim of accelerating actions to achieve Goal 8.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals ( ODS ). As a Pioneer country of Alliance 8.7, Mexico adopted a Roadmap with 10 priority actions to eradicate child labor, forced labor and human trafficking, and the project will provide support to implement the Road Map.

The project will support Mexico to promote Fair Recruitment practices at the national level. In addition, the project will strengthen Mexico’s role in the Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Initiative Free of Child Labor ( RILAC ), a regional platform that closely coordinates with Alliance 8.7. To date, RILAC has shown significant results in the region, including the creation of a South-South and Triangular Cooperation mechanism and the development and implementation of the Child Labor Risk Identification Model ( CLRISK ).
