Angola, republic on the south west coast of Africa. Angola is a plateau that slopes steeply to the coast in the west. In the north there is wet savannah, in the south dry savannah, which turns into desert in the southeast. The population consists mostly of Bantu tribes. Although only a small proportion of the state’s land can be used for agriculture, the majority of the population lives from agriculture (especially the cultivation of coffee). The country is rich in mineral resources, especially oil, diamonds and iron ore.
Story: The first Portuguese settlers settled here around 1520. In 1951 the Portuguese colony became an overseas province on an equal footing with the provinces of Portugal. From 1961, three liberation movements supported by the Soviet Union and Cuba fought for the country’s independence, which was declared in 1975. In the period that followed, there were repeated clashes similar to civil wars between the liberation movements. In 1991 a multi-party system was approved. In 1994 the parties to the civil war signed a peace agreement that did not end the fighting. Another ceasefire agreement was concluded in spring 2002. After the end of the armed conflict, efforts to rebuild the country began. In this way, most of the civil war refugees were able to return home. Elections were held in 2008, and in 2010 parliament approved a new constitution. In September 2017, João Lourenço (* 1954) was sworn in as President of Angola.

With an average of 24 residents / km 2 (2017), Angola is very thinly and unevenly populated. The northern and more humid areas of the country in particular are at risk from tropical sleeping sickness and the Nagana animal disease. The population is made up of around 90 Bantu-speaking peoples. The largest group are the Ovimbundu (37%); they live mainly on the coast (province of Benguela) and in the highlands of Bié. To the north of it (province of Luanda) live the Mbundu (25%; Ndongo-Ngola). The northwest and Cabinda belong to the habitat of the Congo, in the northeast live the Chokwe, in the south and southeast there are isolated groups of San and Pygmies. The number of Europeans (mostly Portuguese) living in Angola is estimated at around 1% of the population. 46% of the population live in cities (2017). By far the largest city is the metropolis of Luanda; other urban centers are Huambo, Lobito and Benguela.

The increase in the population in the cities is mainly due to the influx of internally displaced persons as a result of the civil war since the 1980s. The number of displaced people in their own country was at times more than 4 million, around 1.5 million people lost their lives. Over 500,000 Angolans currently live abroad.
Social: Despite the economic boom, the standard of living is very low for the majority of the population. More than a third of all Angolans have no access to health services and safe drinking water. Child mortality is 8%. The immune deficiency disease AIDS is also a major problem: the infection rate in adults (age group 15 to 49 years) is 2.2%.
