Country Context

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea is a country located in Central Africa. With an area of 28,000 km2, it shares borders with the Republic of Cameroon to the North, Gabon to the South and East and the Equatorial Atlantic Ocean to the West.

The climate of Equatorial Guinea is categorized as "tropical rainforest" according to Köppen, with features of "tropical savannah" at its easternmost end. The geographical conditions that significantly modify the climate of the territory in its continental part (Muni River) are the existence of the coast and the relief of the southern portion, mainly in the southeastern part where Monte Mitra is located (1200 m). The population of Equatorial Guinea is 1,014,999 inhabitants, with more than 70% of the population living in rural rural areas and the economy is highly dependent on the extraction of oil and liquefied gas, as well as the export of wood, cocoa and coffee.
