twentyfifty carried out research for UNICEF’s 2014 Pilot Project on Children’s Rights in the Extractives Industry.

  • The oil & gas study examined the management of both negative and positive child rights impacts through a series of stakeholder interviews.
  • The mining report used in-depth engagement with companies to determine the extent to which child rights are being integrated into human rights due diligence.

UNICEF will use the findings of this report to engage with the industries and as the basis for guidance. twentyfifty is also assisting UNICEF to develop practical business training on the Children’s Rights and Business Principles.
