The Project entails financing the refurbishment, maintenance and operation of Cabo Verde’s airport network consisting of four international and three domestic airports spread across seven islands, under a 40-year concession. Vinci Airports SAS, in consortium with ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal, was awarded the concession by the Government of Cabo Verde (the Grantor) on 4-May-2022, and the Concession Agreement (CA) was signed on 18-Jul-2022. Under the CA, the Concessionaire Cabo Verde Airports S.A. will commit to capital investments in the airports and to pay concession fees to the Grantor. The overall investment will be split into two phases, namely Phase 1-A and Phase 1-B. The Project relates to Phase 1-A only.

The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
