These two nations remain close in cooperation, especially in the following areas: renewable energy, combating drug trafficking, oceanography and seaports. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection of Germany are actively involved in research cooperation with Cape Verde (marine research, oceanography, climate monitoring and climate protection, protecting West African fishing grounds).
