    Cameroon has high levels of organised crime, ranking 13th in Africa for criminality.

    With the exception of the cocaine and heroin markets, all other criminal markets in the country are considered to have a moderate to significant negative influence on society. Human trafficking and smuggling are prevalent throughout the country although the highest scores are in the environmental criminal markets. There are concerns surrounding illicit trafficking and smuggling of timber, gemstones and stolen fuel. Furthermore, Cameroon has become a hotspot for the poaching, smuggling and trafficking of wildlife products, and these markets are often controlled by national criminal networks. Cameroon is considered a highly corrupt state, with criminal state-embedded actors having a negative impact on nearly all parts of society as a result of their involvement in numerous criminal markets, scoring 8. In terms of resilience, Cameroon’s opaque government means that there are high levels of corruption, which undermines any ability to combat organised crime effectively. While Cameroon scores relatively well on international cooperation and non-state actors, most other resilience indicators are characterised by extreme ineffectiveness. Indeed, Cameroon ranks 32nd in Africa on overall resilience.
