Gambia is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a world ranking of 168 out of 187 according to the United Nations Development Programme's (UNDP) Human Development Report 2013. High poverty rates and lack of economic diversity make the country highly vulnerable to financial crises and food price volatility. However, stable economic development and the government’s initiatives to improve the industry’s awareness level supported its growth during the review period (2009–2013), which grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.8%.
