Study in Cape Verde

 

With the aim to boost the attractiveness of some sites, the Cape Verdean Ministry of Tourism and Economical Investment commissioned ECOPLAGE to make a technical and environmental assessment of the recovery of 20 sites on these 5 islands: São Vicente, São Antão, Santiago, Sal and Boa Vista. Finally 33 sites have been visited and inspected.

The inspection has highlighted some general problems encountered on the majority of sites: health, hygiene, safety, flood management and tourism promotion.

Suggestions for the creation or enhancement have been proposed for all the 20 inspected sites on those 4 islands. For 20 sites, it appears that enhancement or creation is technically possible in an engineering and environmental point of view.
