The introduction of coffee and cocoa in the south-east of Ivory Coast has induced during the 20th century a profound change in this region’s landscape. The results has been a massive development and expansion of cash crops at the sacrifice of natural vegetation formations. This situation has grown stronger during the last decades with the promotion of oil palm and rubber plantations. Thus, the diversification of cash crops promoted by the Ivorian government endangers the natural resources and the availability of agricultural lands for the growing population of the region. The lack of data (mapping and statistics) about land availabilities and the level of human pressure hinder the decision-making for better resource management.
