Long Abstract: In its effort to eliminate child trafficking in 2002, the government joined the International Labour Organization (ILO) and International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) sub-regional programme entitled 'Combating the Trafficking of Children for Labour Exploitation in West and Central Africa.' ILO Convention 182 outlaws child trafficking and the worst forms of child labour. The organization, along with the IOM, several other NGOs and government departments, have contributed to the draft human trafficking bill. Most of those involved expect that it will be passed by parliament sometime next year, although it seems to have been delayed by the upcoming election. Currently, the Attorney General's department is revising the bill. Even when the law is passed, most experts agree that enforcement will require significant financial support, training of law enforcement agencies and education.
