Description:

Best Practices in the World's Oldest Desert.

Summary / Notes:

Promoting best practices for conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity of global significance in the semiarid areas of Namibia is being undertaken by a loose public, private, nongovernmental (NGO) partnership. This is being led by the public sector that manages a number of established national parks and more recently, in partnership with the NGO community, is promoting community based natural resource management through conservancies on commercial and communal farming lands. The private sector is primarily involved in tourism that provides the foreign exchange income motivating the public sector, with its many alternative social responsibilities, to retain their interest in biodiversity. In the arid areas of Namibia, a similar situation prevails with differences of emphasis but not overall pattern.
