Migration initiatives

IOM Gabon will strengthen its support to the Government to further develop national policy documents geared for combat human trafficking. This support will be delivered through the following:

  • Conduct a national survey on human trafficking in Libreville and surrounding areas to better understand the current changing dynamic of this phenomena.
  • Establish an expert panel tasked with writing this national strategy.
  • Develop an action plan for the implementation of the national strategy by national and local authorities.
