Sao Pedro is a small fishing village located very close to the Cesária Évora airport, in Sao Vicente Island, Cabo Verde. On March 2019, during the Workshop on Ocean and Coastal Information Needs organised with GEO Blue Planet, we had the opportunity to meet the local fishing community and learn more about their livelihoods.
