West Africa Coastal Vulnerability Mapping: Commercial Crop Production, 2000

The West Africa Coastal Vulnerability Mapping: Commercial Crop Production, 2000 data set includes 5-minute rasters of crop production in metric tons per grid cell for five higher-value export crops in West Africa: cocoa, bananas, coconut, palm oil, and rubber. Commercial crops are economically valuable to the countries of West Africa, and some are at high risk due to sea level rise and storm surge impacts. The crop production rasters are derived from the harvested area and yield rasters in the M3-Crops data collection (Monfreda et al., 2008) which includes geographic distributions for 175 crops.
