The State of Hunger in Ivory Coast

While Ivory Coast is rich in crops like cocoa, cotton, and cashews, conflict frequently disrupts critical planting and harvesting times for farmers. Crop deficits, trade embargoes, and widespread poverty make the lean season—the annual period of food scarcity—difficult.

More than 20% of children under five in Ivory Coast are stunted. There are significant water, sanitation, and hygiene needs: one in five families does not have access to drinking water.
