The link between climate change and increased child trafficking and forced labour was in the spotlight at a special summit hosted by the 104th International Labour Conference in Geneva.

Heads of state underlined how the effects of changing weather patterns create dangerous conditions for children.

The International Labour Organization estimates that more than 168 million children are trapped in child labour worldwide.

Carla Drysdale reports from the conference.
