Resumo: The agriculture in Cape Verde is characterized by low and irregular productivity and it can not produce more than 20% of the food needs of the country, where food insecurity and poverty are closely linked to the weakness of the productive base. The horticulture is considered as one of the most profitable, with an important role in food security and the familie´s budget. The main purpose of this present dissertation is the study of the importance of horticulture in the families’ income and food security, through vegetables sale and consumption. A case study was made of the families with and without horticultural production in Fogo island in Cape Verde and it was proved that the households with irrigation have a highly superior annual income than the households without irrigation, and that horticulture had a remarkable contribution to that of that income. In terms of nutrition it was proved that within household’s facilities with irrigated land results in a higher caloric consumption towards those without irrigation. It was also proved that household’s facilities with irrigated land results in a more diversified nourishment, either by the daily frequency of vegetables and/or fruit consumption as well as respective consumption per capita.
