14. Cambodia – 1.029%

Cambodia struggles with human trafficking, with more than 155,800 people subjected to slavery in a variety of ways – sex exploitation, domestic servitude, forced prostitution, and bonded labor practices. Families have been known to sell children into forced street begging or waste scavenging to pay off debts, and many adults are lured into exploitative labor practices in the country’s booming garment industry. While child trafficking laws in Cambodia have been strengthened in recent years, there are no signs of progress to curb child trafficking.
