Heather-Clark, S. 1996. An environmental overview of the Walvis Bay 'Bay Area', Namibia. Master Thesis, University of Cape Town


Description:

An environmental overview of the Walvis Bay 'Bay Area', Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

This dissertation forms part of a process which began when DANCED initiated the first stages of a project aimed at aiding the Namibian Government in the development of an Integrated Coastal Zone Management _Plan for the coastline of the Erongo Region. DANCED requested the assistance of the MPhil students, from the Department of Environmental and Geographical Science of the University of Cape Town, in the compilation of a baseline report for the region. The first step involved the collection and synthesis of baseline data on all environmental factors (natural and social) pertaining to the Erongo Region. This was followed by individual research dissertations by each member of the class. After review of the Baseline Report, the greater Walvis Bay 'bay area ' was identified as a priority area in terms of coastal zone management of the Erongo Region. The aim of this dissertation is thus to provide an environmental overview of the Walvis Bay ' bay area' that can assist planners and relevant authorities in the effective management the area. Firstly, the importance of the study area as a conservation area is established. It is noted that the Walvis Bay wetland is one of the top five most important wetland areas in Africa. Secondly, there is little co-ordination and communication between the authorities that have jurisdiction over portions of the study area and this has led to ineffective management of the area. Thirdly, the study area is defined and the major human activities operating within the study area are identified and described.
