Costs and benefits of eliminating child labour in Nepal
PDF File Size: 57.95 MB | Download   
Although many studies have examined the measures necessary to combat child labour, in Nepal there has been no comprehensive research on the economic costs and benefits of the effective elimination of child labour. In particular, there has been little information on the resources required for such an undertaking and on the allocation of these resources.
In an effort to narrow this knowledge gap, IPEC undertook a global study of the costs
and benefits of eliminating child labour. The results were published in the report Investing in everv child: An economic study o.f the costs and bene.fits o.f eliminating child labour (ILO, 2004). The present study addresses the costs and benefits of the elimination of child labour in the Nepalese context. It is intended both as an illustration of how the global trends described in Investing in everlt child are reflected in the case of an individual country, as well as a guiding tool for the policymakers in Nepal.
Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) is, in principle, a complete decision tool that requires the identification and magnetization of all consequences of a given course of action. If the sum of benefits outweighs the costs, the action is undertaken and vice versa. However, in the present study, we are not strictly adhering to this approach. Instead, this study assumes that many important benefits of the elimination of child labour, such as the enhanced opportunity for personal development and social inclusion, are difficult to quantify. Hence, economic benefits like greater income for the individual and more rapid economic growth for the society will be estimated, but the cultural and social benefits will not. Thus, in a technical sense, this is a study of net economic costs (or benefits) of eliminating child labour, designed to give an indication of the economic consequences of that decision.
