Guinea

Explore historical and projected climate data, climate data by sector, impacts, key vulnerabilities and what adaptation measures are being taken. Explore the overview for a general context of how climate change is affecting Guinea.

Country Context

Guinea is located in West Africa between the latitudes of 7-13° N along the Atlantic Ocean. The country spans 245,858 km2 and stretches along the Atlantic for 300 km. Guinea has a population of 12.6 million, according to World Bank estimates in 2016. Guinea is slowly emerging from the Ebola and low commodity price shocks that adversely affected its economy in 2014 and 2015. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew at 6.6% in 2016, driven by an increase in production of bauxite and gold, as well as by a resilient agriculture sector. And, although services and manufacturing continue to stagnate in the aftermath of Ebola, GDP growth is projected at 6.7% for 2017. The Guinean economy faced two main risks in 2017: The first was maintaining macroeconomic and fiscal reforms; and the second was ensuring socio-political stability. Its priority sectors for investment include infrastructure, energy, health and environment.
