Description:

Wood fuels review and assessment :Namibia Country Report.

Summary / Notes:

Despite being the driest country in Southern Africa, Namibia nonetheless produces considerable woody biomass on its total land area of 830,000 km 2 and an estimated population of 1.6 million people. The country is divided in climatic terms as desert, arid, semi-arid and semi-humid regions. Rainfall ranges from less 50 mm at the coastal desert to 700 mm per year in the northern and northeastern semi-humid regions. In vegetation terms, deserts, savannahs and woodlands occupy 16, 20 and 64 % of the land respectively. The savannah, which is subdivided into 5 sub-classes and the woodlands, is the place where the woody biomass is to be found.
