Cape Verde

Cape Verde has seen a decade of rapid tourism growth, but with little collaboration between the public and private sector to address local issues. This has led to limited opportunities for local people to benefit and pressure on natural resources.

Our aim is to enable stakeholders to work together to improve the impacts of tourism on Sal and Boa Vista.

What we’re doing

We’ve brought local authorities, private businesses and NGO’s together to form a Destination Council, creating a culture of shared ownership and management. A range of projects are now supporting sustainable tourism practices.
