    Chad has a high criminality score, ranking 15th in Africa, which is driven primarily by the pervasive influence of various criminal actors in the country.

    Mafia-style groups engage in a number of criminal markets, but predominantly illicit arms trafficking. Arms trafficking has been attributed by experts to have a severely negative and encroaching influence on nearly all parts of Chadian society. It is an illicit market that follows the same routes as refugees from neighbouring countries affected by conflict. There appears to be a significant link between these mafia-style groups and drug trafficking. Moreover, increased consumption of and demand for synthetic drugs are a concern. Chad is positioned 48th in the resilience rankings, highlighting the country's ineffectiveness in responding to organised crime. Although there are policies and laws in place, the extent of the criminal markets and actors significantly stymies efforts to build resilience.

    Curbing tramadol and other trafficking networks requires transnational cooperation.
