Côte d’Ivoire: Zones à risques d’inondations et de choléra (Juin 2014)

Chaque année lors de la saison des pluies, la Côte d'Ivoire fait face à des inondations et glissement de terrain. Depuis 2009, 13 personnes en moyenne perdent la vie chaque année dans la ville d’Abidjan à cause de ces intempéries. Malgré les mesures du gouvernement, plusieurs ménages habitent toujours les zones à risques. Les causes seraient, la proximité du lieu de travail, la pauvreté, les coûts élevés du logement ou l’attente d’une aide conséquente du gouvernement pour leur relocalisation.
