The International Labour Organization (ILO) committee is dedicated to addressing the pressing issue of inhumane working conditions in cobalt mines across Africa. These mines, predominantly located in countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, play a crucial role in the production of electronic devices. The committee’s primary goal is to formulate comprehensive strategies aimed at safeguarding the rights and well-being of workers involved in the cobalt mining industry. Delegates will meticulously analyze the current situation, delve into the underlying causes of the problem, and propose sustainable solutions. By means of collaborative discussions and negotiations, the ILO committee endeavors to ensure the provision of decent working conditions, fair remuneration, and the elimination of child labor within the cobalt mining sector. Such efforts aim to foster a more ethical and equitable global supply chain.
