- As with other west African countries, Gabon is the most popular destination for children who are trafficked to other African countries with the intention of forced labour. Girls are typically targeted for domestic servitude, selling of goods, restaurant labor as well as sexual exploitation while boys are targeted for street hawking, forced street vending as well as forced labour at small manufacturing facilities.
- Tier 2 Watch List – Gabon is listed on the Tier 2 Watch List for the inability to show evidence of a rise in efforts to fight people trafficking, especially in relation to attempts to convict and penalize trafficking offenders. The government has not released the verdicts or convictions of anyone who is a trafficker; the government did not take any measures to curb the demands for sexual acts that are commercially marketed. Urban areas that are crowded are especially hazardous at night, but incident during the day are regular. The presence of pedestrians in the street is not an indication of safety.
