Description:

City of Walvis Bay, Namibia - Biodiversity: an asset for future development.

Summary / Notes:

Walvis Bay is blessed with a rich biodiversity and very special but fragile ecosystems. Its ecosystems comprise the Namib Desert dunes and associated gravel plains, the Walvis Bay coastlinernand lagoon, the ephemeral Kuiseb River Delta and other ecosystems. This presents various development opportunities (e.g. tourism), which simultaneously poses a threat to these local assets. The Municipality of Walvis Bay meets the challenges in controlling human activities impacting on the fragile ecosystems through various environmental management policies, strategies and programs.
