Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, Recommendation for Kazakhstan, par. 31 and 27 (2010)

Text of the recommendation

31. ...The Committee recommends that the State party address disparities between urban and rural areas and among regions with regard to adequate housing, sanitation systems and water connections. The Committee requests the State party in its next periodic report to provide detailed information relating to the housing situation, including the number of urban slum-dwellers and the percentage of dwellings in rural areas that do not have access to clean drinking water and proper sewage and sanitation systems. The Committee is concerned about the persistence of child labour in the State party, including by children of migrant workers in tobacco and cotton farms.

27. The Committee is also concerned that these children do not attend school during farming periods. The Committee calls on the State party to take urgent measures to ensure protection of all children against all forms of exploitation and undertake effective measures to enable them to fully enjoy their right to education.
