Liberia, Land and Resources

The coast of Liberia extends 580 km (360 mi) from the Mano River in the west to the Cavalla River in the east. From a narrow, flat coastal belt the country rises in a series of ill-defined plateaus to a higher interior. The coastal strip, extending about 80 km (about 50 mi) inland, is virtually the only developed region. The interior is heavily forested; mountains reach elevations of about 900 to 1,200 m (about 3,000 to 4,000 ft). Many comparatively small rivers traverse the country.
