AGRICULTURE

Liberia has the highest ratio of direct foreign investment to GDP in the world. Richly endowed with water, mineral resources, forests and a climate favorable to agriculture, the country is a strong producer and exporter of basic products such as raw timber and rubber.

Of the total land area, only 4 percent is utilized for cultivated crops, while another 2 percent supports permanent crops such as fruit- and nut-bearing trees.

CHALLENGES

Environmental issues facing Liberia include tropical rain forest deforestation, soil erosion, loss of biodiversity and pollution of coastal waters.
