Cabo Verde - Porto Ingles and Palmeira ports modernisation and expansion project - Appraisal Report

Given the geographical configuration of Cabo Verde, the development of maritime transport is crucial for the country. The significant tourism potential of Maio Island cannot be developed due to the poor performance of the Porto Inglês in Maio. Moreover, the investments made in Palmeira Port during the first two phases of maritime works, executed in 2010 and 2017, have not been profitable to date due to the limited capacity of the port's land infrastructure. Hence, the Government of Cabo Verde has requested the Bank to contribute to the financing of the project to expand and modernize Porto...

Santiago Island, Cabo Verde’s largest and most important agricultural centre, depends on water for its survival, but for years had been beset by endemic water shortages. Traditionally women, who make up a significant percentage of farmers, were hardest hit by the shortfall in supply. The Lopes family are typical farmers hailing...

Sauce Arachide (viande de brousse) avec foutou banane

A key characteristic of the Republic of Cabo Verde in climatic terms is its very high level of water stress. Indeed, the country’s climate is characterized by very low rainfall (230 mm/year on average) with high intensities and poor temporal and spatial distribution. With the exception of desalinized sea water, the water resources used for various purposes come essentially from ground water. Ground water is used preferentially for DWS and surface water for agriculture. In a situation of insufficient ground water, desalinized sea-water is also used for DWS. This situation puts pressure on...
