Cabo 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.
We recently completed projects that have enabled stakeholders to work together to improve the impacts of tourism on Sal and Boa Vista.
What we did
We brought local authorities, private businesses and NGO’s together to form a Destination Council, creating a culture of shared ownership and management. As part of our partnership with TUI Care Foundation we also delivered a range of projects to support sustainable tourism practices in Sal and Boa Vista.
