Located 500 kilometres off the west coast of Africa, Cabo Verde is an archipelago of 10 islands. The country’s population is spread across nine islands that are scattered within a large water area, which constitutes a major constraint to growth and development. Only 10% of its territory is classified as arable land, and the country possesses limited mineral resources.

Cabo Verde's economy is driven by tourism grounded in year-round attractive weather, beautiful beaches, stable democracy, limited security risks and proximity to Europe. Its limited economies of scale create significant connectivity issues, as well as challenges for service delivery including energy, water, education, and health (World Bank, 2020).
