Pollution[edit]

  • Planning a base for automotive recycling by the French company GDE, a subsidiary of the industrial group Trafigura, which sent the ship Probo-Koala to Abidjan in 2006 (see 2006 Ivory Coast toxic waste spill). The proposal was defeated and no longer applies, however recent pollution of the rivers has destroyed a mature fish population and is expected to take several years to recover (article in the Telegram July 2017).
