About Djibouti

Education is compulsory for six years at the primary level followed by seven years of secondary education. Projected adult illiteracy rates for the year 2000 stand at 48.6% (males, 35%; females, 61.6%). In 1997, there were 161 students engaged in post-secondary education, 44% of which were female. As of 1990, public expenditure on education was estimated at3.5% of GDP.

Agriculture in Djibouti is very limited, due to acute water shortages in rural areas. In 2000, agriculture contributed only a little more than 4% to GDP. In 1999, some 23,000 tons of vegetables were produced. Tomatoes are grown for domestic consumption. Date palms are cultivated along the coastal fringe. Famine and malnutrition in Djibouti have created a reliance on the distribution of food aid for millions of its people. In 2001, grain imports totaled 37,970 tons.
