More about Cape Verde
- REMZFAMILY: Modern history of Cape Verde from World War I to today, covering all major events on politics, economy, society, and technology.
The Cape Verde Islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean, about 600 km from Cape Verde (Senegal), after which they are named. The ten larger islands of the archipelago (nine are inhabited) and five islets are arranged approximately in the form of an approximately 250 km long horseshoe open to the west. They are of volcanic origin and mainly made up of basalts and phonolites. There is active volcanism on Fogo; At 2,829 m above sea level, the Pico de Fogo is the highest point in the archipelago (last eruption: 2014).
On the eastern islands, larger areas are covered with sand dunes or salt marshes, on the western islands there are cliffs that are more than 100 m high. Most of the islands are criss-crossed by deeply cut valleys. According to their position in relation to the prevailing northeast trade winds, the islands are divided into a northern group called “Barlavento” (islands above the wind) and a southern group called “Sotavento” (islands below the wind).
Most of the year, the islands are in the area of influence of the dry northeast trade winds, only from the end of July to the beginning of November southern, warm, humid air masses bring rain: in the coastal areas around 200 mm annual precipitation, in the high altitudes up to over 1,000 mm; here the windward sides are almost constantly shrouded in fog. The annual mean temperature on Sal is 23.4 ° C, the average relative humidity 60%. Check handbagpicks to see Cape Verde Tour Plan.
The population of the islands, which were uninhabited at the time of their discovery, essentially arose from a mixture of European settlers (mainly from Portugal) and mostly African slaves displaced from the Guinea countries (up to the 19th century). The share of the mulattos in the total population is 71% today; 28% are black; Whites are a small minority. In addition to the official language Portuguese, the crioulo is used colloquially, a Portuguese that has been changed acoustically with African language elements.
The average population density (2017) is 136 residents / km 2; the proportion of the urban population at 67%. More than half of the residents live on São Tiago with the capital Praia. The second largest city, most important port and economic center is Mindelo on São Vicente.

Overall, however, fewer Cape Verdians live on the Cape Verde Islands than abroad (over 850,000). As a result of the poor economic conditions and the repeated famine, many Cape Verdeans emigrated (especially to the USA, Portugal and Angola).
Social: The moderate population growth in recent years (2017: 1.33%) is due on the one hand to the birth rate slowed down by family planning (2.0%) and on the other hand to the high number of emigrants. Improving the health system reduced the death rate (2017: 0.6%) and increased life expectancy to 72.4 years (men 70.1; women 74.8). Medical care shows a clear urban-rural and rich-poor divide. On average, there were 8 doctors and 21 hospital beds for every 10,000 residents in 2015. A general problem is the supply of the population with sufficient drinking water.
The constitution guarantees freedom of religion. All religious communities are legally equal. About 77% of the population belong to the Catholic Church, a good 3% to (post-) Reformation faith communities (especially Church of the Nazarene, Pentecostal), almost 5% to other religious groups with references to Christianity ( Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh-day Adventists, New Apostolics Church ). The Catholic Church includes the exemten dioceses of Santiago de Cabo Verde (bishopric: Praia) and Mindelo. Furthermore, many forms of pre-Christian African religiosity are cultivated, integrated into the Catholic popular church piety practice. With around 2% of the population, Muslims form the largest non-Christian religious minority. Almost 11% of the population do not feel connected to any religion.
