Forum Report on Southern Africa 2015

The gathering of the Global Child Forum on Southern Africa was the start of a critical chain reaction that is necessary to see us step up our protection of children’s rights in Africa. . With 53 speakers from 28 countries and 250 delegates from the public and private sector, civil society, non-governmental organizations and academia, the Global Child Forum in Southern Africa presented us with a unique occasion to come together to plan action around children’s rights and address imbalances which can no longer be ignored.

Children's Rights in Southern Africa 2019

In an effort to provide insights and guidance on how businesses protect – or fall short in protecting – children’s rights in South Africa, this report draws on one of Global Child Forum’s essential research products ‘The corporate sector and children’s rights benchmark’. More specifically, insights are provided across three areas where the corporate sector impacts children’s rights: The Workplace, The Marketplace, The Community and the Environment. In 2015, Global Child Forum, in partnership with Boston Consulting Group, published a benchmark study of the 271 largest companies in the region. This report is a follow-up to that study. An updated benchmark analysis has been conducted on 20 of the region’s largest companies.
