Top 10 Countries Receiving Foreign Aid In Africa

Written by Keren Mikva

5. Côte d’Ivoire – $2.635 billion

The lower middle-income, developing country of Côte d’Ivoire had a gross domestic product of $30.91 billion in 2013, with a gross national income per capita of $1,380. Of its 20.32 million people, 42.7 percent live below the poverty line. Unfortunately, like many other countries, Côte d’Ivoire struggles with lack of transparency when it comes to allocating foreign aid, and donors are often frustrated by apparent corruption and bad governance that leads to misappropriation of funds meant for socioeconomic growth.
