Cabo Verde

Title: Cabo Verde

Tier: 1

Type: country

Economic and ecological problems must be wisely addressed. The arid islands lack adequate fresh water and arable land. Scant resources were poorly managed in the past, intensifying Cabo Verde’s poverty. Pray for government leaders who will make good decisions and develop the economy for the betterment of the whole nation.
