The excellent economic performance of Côte d’Ivoire has not produced the results expected in terms of social inclusion and a reduction in the poverty rate, which remains high. In 2018, Côte d’Ivoire ranked 170th among 189 countries on the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) Human Development Index and has a low human capital index score (0.35) according to World Bank rankings.

Despite recent efforts, Côte d’Ivoire remains one of the countries with the highest gender inequality rates in the world. Low completion rates of lower secondary education, maternal mortality (645 deaths per 100,000 live births), infant malnutrition, and youth unemployment (36% of young people between the ages of 15 and 35) are some of the main challenges to the development of Côte d’Ivoire (World Bank, 2020)
