Recently, I spent several weeks arriving in Benin on a short flight and eating my way through the country, doing my best to try as much of the local cuisine as possible. I certainly took what I found with me, and I'm glad I did because I've been eating like a crazy person since I arrived.
The funny thing about the night food in Abidjan is everywhere, and it is so dimly lit And so often you can't see what you're eating. Food from Ivory Coast is not what I expected from East African cuisine, which generally has a soft, mild flavor, but it was not at all what I expected. This surprised me, coming from Nigeria, and I was surprised at how progressive it is compared to the countries around it, although I never thought I would see that in West Africa.
Intra-industry trade implicitly helps us to draw added value from the Ivory Coast, which is rich in raw materials. However, it is the volume of trade that led to the Ivory Coast's second-largest trading partner after the US in 2017. Chinese investors involved in the drinking water project in Abidjan have been supported by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Development and the China Development Bank.
Ivory Coast is a member of the African Union (AU), which also includes Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It borders Cameroon, Gabon, Ivory Coast, and Senegal, and borders the Central African Republic (CAR) and Ghana. It has a population of about 2.5 million people and an economy of about 1.2 billion dollars.
The sites studied belong to the African Forest Elephant Conservation Area (AFCA) of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and are currently classified as African forest elephants by the Red List, and the species is classified as critically endangered. The population studied is therefore assumed to be forest elephants, but the PA studied extends beyond the borders of Ivory Coast to the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic (CAR), and Ghana.
Roth estimates that 3,050 forest elephants are scattered throughout Ivory Coast, but most data do not follow standardized protocols, and some were made at least a decade ago. The lack of updated data on the status of forest elephant populations in the Palestinian Authority certainly contributes to the real threat.
The country is called Côte d'Ivoire, which everyone officially calls, even those with English as their mother tongue, but it is actually a country with a population of about 1.5 million people.
The country is a power plant in West Africa and has contributed to the development of many countries in the region, including Ghana, Burkina Faso, and Ivory Coast. The Ivory Coast's thriving economy has also attracted large numbers of migrants from Ghana and Burkinagala, but also from other parts of Africa - an estimated 2.6 million in 2000. Of the 1.5 million people living in Cotes d'Ivoire, one-third or half are from Burkina Faso, the rest are Ghanaians, Nigerians, and people of other ethnic and religious origins. The biggest threats to West Africa are habitat loss and human intervention, according to a recent United Nations report.
The conservation status of forest elephants in Cotes d'Ivoire is considerably worse than previously reported in other countries. Most pas in Ivory Coast do not receive tangible wildlife management and the rest of the population is isolated in the surrounding agricultural land. Unless urgent action is taken to protect their only refuge, forest elephants will become extinct by the end of this century. This is primarily attributed to the poaching of pas, who remain only in their refuges, and human intervention.
The International Union for the Conservation of Nature recommends the protection of forest elephants in Cotes d'Ivoire until the end of the 20th century. The aim of this study was to obtain an up-to-date status of the protected status of Pas in the Ivory Coast and its impact on wildlife.
The Ivory Coast has an estimated 5,458,000 hectares of forest, of which 1.5 million hectares are in Africa, with an average loss of 265,000 hectares per year in West Africa. Cutes d ' The Ivory Coast also has one of the highest levels of deforestation in the world, with an estimated 265,000 hectares per year.
Almost half of the country's population lives in the cities of Abidjan and Bouake, and the three largest population centers are the capital, Accra, the second-largest city in West Africa.
