    Madagascar ranks 21st in Africa for criminality and is reported to have severe problems in many areas, most notably in the environmental crime markets.

    They are assessed as having a negative influence on nearly every part of society. Foreign actors and state-embedded actors have a significant and spreading negative impact, due to their pervasive role throughout many criminal markets. In terms of resilience, Madagascar performs worse than the majority of African states, ranking 35th on the continent. Madagascar has legislation and frameworks in place to deal with organised crime, but due to reported corruption and poor economic stability, little has been done to ensure the efficacy of responses.
