UN Environment conducted an independent audit of the sites affected by the 2006 waste dumping from the Probo Koala in various parts of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

WASHINGTON, January 19, 2018--The World Bank today approved a total amount of $60.4 million (about FCFA32 billion) in the form of a credit from the International Development Association (IDA*--$50 million), and a grant from the Power of Nutrition Trust Fund ($10.4 million), to support the government of Cote d’Ivoire in its efforts to improve nutrition, cognitive development and education attainment for vulnerable children.
Global estimates suggest that approximately 10 million people worldwide are living without any legal citizenship. Stateless persons face overwhelming obstacles that limit their access to basic entitlements and protections, leaving them vulnerable to discrimination and abuse. Research on health and access to care is generally limited among stateless persons and, currently, there is a dearth of information on statelessness and its relationship to gender based violence (GBV).

1 General Information
Côte d’Ivoire is a country in Western Africa, bordering Ghana in the east, Burkina Faso and Mali in the north, Guinea and Liberia in the west, and the Gulf of Guinea in the south. It has a population of 23,295,302 and covers an area of 322,463 sq. km. The official language is French, although a large number of native dialects are also spoken. (CIA, 11 February 2016).
The World Culture Encyclopedia (WCE) explains the origin of the country’s name:
En Côte d’Ivoire, l’Agence des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés(HCR) et ses partenaires contribuent à garantir les droits fondamentaux des personnes rapatriées et à trouver des solutions durables qui leur permettront de reconstruire leur vie dans la dignité.
Former FNCI forces are highly likely to continue to protest, resulting in violent clashes with forces loyal to the government. Intercommunal tensions make it likely that violence spreads beyond the military to directly involve the population.
Roadblocks and the takeover of port cities will prevent the free movement of both civilians and humanitarian actors.
There is a likelihood of displacement of civilians internally and into neighbouring communities and countries.
Today’s technological advances and innovations in agriculture should touch every aspects of women’s lives in order for them to have the desired impact on African societies.
