Most of the ethnic traditions in West Africa have little to no education, sanitation, or health care Government Republic----73%
Constitutional Democracy----13%
Military Junta----6%
Other----2% We believe that the West African governments are not effective due to the downgraded standard of living and economy. The per-capita income is only one-thousand, six-hundred U.S. dollars per year. The governments are starting to drive their people deeper into poverty and unsanitary means of living.

Some of the countries with large fish exports are having trouble due to piracy and unauthorized fish barges depleting the amount of fish in the lakes and oceans near the western countries.
The railways are now extremely popular for West Africans and have made much money.
West Africans use cars and trucks as transportation, but some still follow the ways of their ethnic groups, and ride cammel or mule

The Countries Today Would We Like To Visit This Area Today? Yes, we would want to visit this region of Africa because of its alternative lifestyles and different yet inspiring ethnic groups. We also would want to visit so that we could see all the environments and have the great experience of viewing other parts of the world. The one thing that might change our mind is the growing piracy and economy, but that is just another part of life in Western Africa.
