    Cape Verde is an emerging nation with a truly
    transformational development agenda. Since achieving

    democracy, making considerable progress in terms of
    growth of gross domestic product (GDP) and income per
    capita, as well as on human development indicators. At
    the end of 2007, the country graduated from the UN�s
    Least-Developed Country (LDC) Group, and in 2008 it
    acceded to the World Trade Organization (WTO).
  • II National Environmental Action Plan (PANA II
    In order to facilitate coordination among environmental protection projects and capitalize synergies from the Rio Conventions, the Government of Cape Verde has drafted and is implementing its second National Environmental Action Plan (PANA II), which is an environmental management tool that embodies the country�s environmental policy.

More specifically, the objectives of PANA II are as follows: (i) define the main environmental and natural resources management policy guidelines; (ii) identify development prospects and priorities; (iii) identify the most efficient and efficacious means of using natural resources; (iv) define the institutional design and the cross-sectoral coordination mechanisms; (v) encourage the incorporation of environmental concerns in planning economic and social development; (vi) promote better livelihood for the populations.
