This study examines the impacts of income, exchange rate, and conflicts on Cashew nuts exports of Guinea-Bissau. The main results obtained by analyzing the impulse response function and variance decomposition showed that, in the short term, exchange rates shocks don’t explain the external demand for this commodity. External demand for cashew nuts responds to changes in global income and Civil Conflicts. However, in the long run, these variables have no impact on cashew nuts exports.
