1998. Summary: A Retrospective Study of the Environmental Impacts of Emergency Borehole Supply in the Gam and Khorixas Areas of Namibia. Research Discussion Paper No 25, Directorate of Environmental Affairs, Ministry of Environment and Tourism, Namibia


Description:

A Retrospective Study of the Environmental Impacts of Emergency Borehole Supply in the Gam and Khorixas Areas of Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

Namibia's climatic, geological and topographical features make water its single most important resource. Since Namibian Independence in 1990, emergency drought relief ptogrammes, resettlement schemes and a need to supply rural areas with clean, reliable water has resulted in the large scale provision of boreholes to communal areas which lack permanent surface water. Two case areas formed the focus for research into the environmental impacts of boreholes.

Year: 1998

Type: Research Discussion Paper

Origin: Ministry of Environment and Tourism
