Urbanization in Cape Verde can not be analyzed without taking into account its geography – the archipelago consists of 6 islands of different sizes and unevenly endowed with natural resources – and the size of the population (barely 5000,000 inhabitants in 2010). Few places manage to cross the threshold of the city (2 cities until 2000). Against by the growth of urbanization rate is relatively high (47% in 2010), mainly driven by the growth of the administrative capital Praia, where lives 57% of urban and 25% of the total population.
