Description:

National Policy on the Utilization of Devil's Claw (Harpyagophytum) products 2010.

Summary / Notes:

Devil's Claw (Harpagophytum procumbens and H. zeyheri) is found in Namibia, Botswana, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and some northern parts of South Africa. A proportion of Namibian Devil's Claw is harvested in the commercial areas but most is sourced from communal areas and is harvested by communal people. Devil's Claw material is exported as dried, unprocessed slices and finished products in the form of capsules, tea and powder. The Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) is tasked with management activities linked to its conservation, including sustainable use of the resource and optimising benefits to those who are involved in its harvesting and trade.
