Living in Benin
Situated in West Africa, Benin is bordered by four nations; Togo, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and Niger. With the population densely populating the southern coastline of the North Atlantic, the remaining territory can be divided into four distinct areas. With the low lying coastal plain dominated by marshy land, the forest-savanna reigns over the southern areas of Benin, followed by rocky hills finally extending into the Atacora mountain range in the north of the country. The range of terrain allows for a range of economic opportunities for Benin, but most predominant is cotton production, accounting for around 80% of exports and approximately 40% of GDP. This has contributed to its economic growth; however, population growth has prevented the effects of this economic gain. The population has grown five-fold between 1950 and 2016 and there is a vast range of ethnic groups, including 42 African groups, as well as Indian and Lebanese communities involved with trade. There is also a European diaspora, though this mainly consists of nationals sent to help with aid and are by far the minority. Despite this, the national language is French, yet Beninese traditions have been held onto. Alongside traditional dress, Beninese literature has a strong oral presence despite the French language, but many cross-cultural scenes have developed, including French cabaret and American rock.
