    Comoros scores low on criminality, ranking 45th out of 54 African countries in the Index.

    This is primarily due to the non-existent to little influence of the trade in cocaine, cannabis and synthetic drugs. Notably, however, the heroin trade scores considerably higher because the Comoros islands are a significant trans-shipment point. Among environmental crimes, while non-renewable resources crimes and flora crimes are low-scoring, experts deem fauna crimes to have a significant influence on society. Human trafficking is considered to be a significant problem for Comoros. It is feared corrupt government officials involved in the illicit market may be underreporting it. Comoros ranks 45th for resilience, with only two categories considered to be moderately effective. There are minimal measures for the prevention and curbing of organised crime. This may be due in part to the high level of suspected corruption in the government.
