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.
