Ministry of Environment and Tourism and Ministry of Mines and Energy. 2018. National policy on prospecting and mining in protected areas


Description:

National policy on prospecting and mining in protected areas.

Summary / Notes:

The vision of the Policy is to develop integrated and sustainable prospecting and mining in Namibia to support economic growth, whilst maintaining the integrity of ecosystems and natural resources, and avoiding degradation of areas highly sensitive for their ecological, social and/or cultural heritage value. This is to be achieved through identification of key ecological and culturally sensitive areas within Namibia's protected areas, development of a Decision Support Tool, and improvement in the procedures for granting different exploration and mining licenses. This Policy presents an important opportunity to strengthen inter-ministerial collaboration and coordination, which will support improved integrated and sustainable development planning that fosters economic growth whilst maintaining the integrity of ecosystems and natural resources upon which Namibia’s people and its economy depend.
