Cote d’Ivoire

Africa

Being the primary sector in the country, agriculture production generates approximately four to eight million tonnes of residual waste. This waste, together with the waste generated by cities, is not recycled and releases significant amounts of greenhouse gasses. Accordingly, the TNA has led to biogas technologies and the production of briquettes from forestry waste being prioritized as measures to curb the emissions released from the residual waste. As a result, two companies, ADERCI and SITRADE, will incorporate biogas production into their waste management plants.

Côte d’Ivoire is located in West Africa, where it borders the North Atlantic Ocean. It is mostly flat with mountains in the northwest. The country is heavily dependent on its agriculture sector, which engages roughly two-thirds of the population. Recently, revenues from the agriculture sector have dropped significantly due to heavy crop losses related to seasonal disturbances exacerbated by climate change.

Côte d’Ivoire completed its TNA in 2013. The list below summarizes the prioritized sectors, along with a selection of the prioritized technologies.

Côte d’Ivoire’s TNA contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals:

Priority technologies for adaptation

  • Agriculture sector
    • Introduction of ‘Rainguard’ in rubber plantations for the protection of latex against rainwater
    • Rapid multiplication of plantain banana and cassava varieties tolerant to water stress
    • Production of rubber and cocoa clones and of banana and rice seeds tolerant to water stress
  • Water resources sector
    • Abstraction of groundwater using a manual pump
    • Using fountains to supply drinking water in peri-urban areas
    • Supplying drinking water through improved village water systems in rural areas

Priority technologies for mitigation

  • Energy sector
    • Photovoltaic solar kit
    • Photovoltaic water-pumping system
    • Small hydropower
  • Waste sector
    • Capturing and flaring biogas in landfills
    • Production of briquettes from agriculture and forestry waste
    • Composting of household waste
