Guinea’s population has poor access to safe water supplies and sanitation. Population growth is rapid and is outstripping improvements in agricultural output. About 25.9 percent (1995) of the country is forested, although about 1.1 percent (1990-1996) is lost every year. The government has established a national park and several reserves. Guinea suffers from desertification, soil contamination and erosion, and overfishing.
