Madagascar is renowned for being one of nature’s paradises. But this paradise is under threat from deforestation and severe resource depletion. Since the start of 2014, the country has once again been run by a democratically elected government. Between 2014, when the democratic government took power, and 2020 the economy had a chance to recover, which had a positive impact on the labour market and helped to decrease the rate of poverty. Yet three out of every four Madagascans are still living on less than USD 1.90 per day, and more than half of the approximately 25 million citizens suffer from hunger. The primary objective of the German development cooperation in Madagascar is to protect nature and natural resources, which helps to protect the livelihoods of the population.
