Environment
The country faces difficulties with deforestation from excessive logging and water pollution from industrial and sewage runoffs. Additionally, flooding is common during the rainy season because the country has heavy surf and no natural harbors.1 Cote d'Ivoire’s economy is highly dependent on cocoa and other agricultural production, which is heavily influenced by the increasing air, water, and soil pollution present in the country. One of the main sources for this issue is the influx of toxic waste from discarded cell phones. The phones are left uncontained to decay, and the metals that leach out of the phones contaminate their surroundings.2

Cote d'Ivoire is heavily dependent on agriculture and related activities, which engage roughly 68% of the population. Cote d'Ivoire is the world's largest producer and exporter of cocoa beans and a significant producer and exporter of coffee and palm oil. Consequently, the economy is highly sensitive to fluctuations in international prices for these products, and, to a lesser extent, in climatic conditions. Cocoa, oil, and coffee are the country's top export revenue earners, but the country is also producing gold. Since the end of the civil war in 2003, political turmoil has continued to damage the economy, resulting in the ...See More loss of foreign investment and slow economic growth. In late 2011, Cote d'Ivoire's economy began to recover from a severe downturn of the first quarter of the year that was caused by widespread post-election fighting. In June 2012, the IMF and the World Bank announced $4.4 billion in debt relief for Cote d'Ivoire under the Highly Indebted Poor Countries Initiative. Cote d'Ivoire's long-term challenges include political instability and degrading infrastructure. Show Less ;
