Cape verde Government Declares Emergency

Body

Already severely affected by Covid-19 and drought, compounded with the effects of the war in Ukraine, Cabo Verde is struggling with a deteriorating socio-economic crisis. On 20 June, the government declared a social and economic emergency. Inflation reached 8 per cent, according to data from May, while in 2021 it was at 1.9 per cent around the same period of the year. With the loss of purchasing power, nine out of 100 Cabo Verdeans are at risk of food insecurity while in 2020, during the pandemic, they were only 2 per cent said the Prime Minister, Ulisses Correia e Silva, during a press conference in the capital Praia. By declaring a social and economic emergency, the government intends to obtain more support from the international community to continue financing the measures to protect families and businesses, he explained.
