Fact sheet

Agro insurance hotspot: Ivory Coast

Agriculture is the vehicle for employment and economic growth in the Ivory Coast. Nearly seven out of ten work the land. Farming also contributes 27% to its GDP. A large share of the income depends on the exports of coffee and cocoa. The latter has a 40% share of the world market. These seemingly thriving agricultural sectors are subjected to the vagaries of nature, such as floods, droughts and wildfires.
