Pedra Badejo, Feb 15 (Inforpress) – The prime minister called this Tuesday for a “combination of efforts” by all to eradicate extreme poverty in Cabo Verde by 2026, particularly in North of Santiago, which is considered one of the regions poorest in the country.
Ulisses Correia e Silva launched this challenge in statements to the press after presiding over the presentation of the National Strategy for the Eradication of Extreme Poverty (ENEPE) 2022-2026 to the six city councils that make up the North Region of Santiago, which took place at the City Hall of Santa Cruz Great Hall, in the interior of Santiago.
North of Santiago, which is made up of six municipalities (Santa Catarina, São Salvador do Mundo, São Lourenço dos Órgãos, Santa Cruz, São Miguel and Tarrafal) is considered one of the poorest regions in the country and has a population of over 120,000 people, according to the Government will make a difference in the implementation of ENEPE 2022-2026.
The initiative is organized in partnership with the European Union (EU). It served to publicize the political vision and policy measures implemented and in progress by the Government and to present to civil society and the six city Halls of the Northern Region the strategic actions necessary to the fight against extreme poverty to be implemented under the new Strategic Plan for Sustainable Development 2022-2026 (PEDS II).
