Excerpt: The region?s population which has 169 million inhabitants in 1980 reached 231 million in 1990. The most populated countries are Nigeria (108 million) and Za?re (35 million). Five small countries have less than one million inhabitants. They are: Cape Verde, Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Equatorial Guinea and Sao Tome Principe. (See Table 1). With population growth rates superior to 3% a year for most of them, the region?s countries are among those which have the highest growth in the world. At that rate, the population doubles in 25 years and the fore casts for the year 2000 do not give the hope of a Sudden inversion in this trend. It can also be observed. That the population growth is unbalanced to the benefit of urban areas. Thus, the rural population which represented 71% of the region?s inhabitants in 1980 was only 64% in 1990. The most urbanized countries are Mauritania (47%), Liberia (46%), Gabon (46%), Sao Tome and Principe (42%) and Cameroon (41%). The urban population growth varies between 5 and 7% a year. Naturally, this rural exodus has consequences on food production and also on the main target group of national policies.
