The risk of modern slavery is particularly high in Africa. Over 80% of sub-Saharan African countries feature in the two highest risk categories, including Kenya and Nigeria, two of the region’s three largest economies. According to the African Union Ten Year Action Plan on Eradication of Child Labour, Forced Labour, Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery in Africa (2020-2030), in 2016, 72 million African children were in child labour, and nearly 3 million adults were in forced labour; another 5.8 million people were in forced marriages.
