The Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, is a country in west Africa, bordering Liberia, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana and on its southern boundary the Gulf of Guinea. The country’s population in 2014 was over 22 million people. Its capital city is Yamoussoukro, but the primary urban centre is Abidjan. The country has always been an economic powerhouse since the 1960s and 1970s, despite some years of unrest. Today, whilst still heavily reliant on agriculture, especially cocoa and coffee farming, the country is undergoing rapid urbanisation, driven to a large extent by its fossil fuel resources.
