Cabo Verde is a developing, archipelagic, dry country with erratic rains, intense soil erosion, little arable land and a high dependence on food imports. These characteristics mean that agricultural risk is very high. In 2013, agriculture employed about 22% of the country’s working population, and this figure reached 82% in rural areas. It is also important to note that rural areas are home to 35% of Cabo Verde’s population, of whom 72% are considered poor. This Agricultural Risk Management (ARM) Study report presents a comprehensive mapping of key agricultural risks in Cabo Verde through a holistic approach. It also provides data and information on priority risks and impacts as well as the existing policies and tools to improve agricultural risk management (ARM) in the country.
