Namibie

Titre : Updating Information and Data on Geographic, Environmental and Socio-Economic Features and Statistics of Namibia

Pays/Région : Namibie

Durée : Nov 2018 - April 2020

Objectifs
The goal is to produce… : * A thoroughly researched, well-coordinated high-quality information and data source, which is presented and distributed to key stakeholders in electronic form. * A state-of-the-art source of information and data on environmental, ecological, and socio-economic indicators, which is visualized and presented in high-quality maps, diagrams, and up-to-date imagery. * Useful information and data resources that serve as a reference for key environmental planning and reporting processes e.g. within the SGD, NDC, Rio Conventions, NDP reporting, the proposed Integrated State of Environment Report, and the State of Environment Conference.

Présentation
A comprehensive atlas about Namibia’s geography was published in 2002. The book was subsequently reprinted several times in response to demand from the public and educational institutions. The last edition was printed in 2010. However, all the reprints relied on the original data sets predating the original 2002 publication.

As the country continues to develop – especially in sectors that require enhanced education, knowledge, and awareness – up-to-date and reliable information on the country’s physical, human and natural environment is a necessity. This is further supported by the persistent requests to the authors for a new edition and/or new data.

Therefore, the time has come to compile and publish a new Atlas of Namibia. This will meet the existing demands of the old atlas and provide an opportunity to present new and updated information about Namibia. A variety of information will be analyzed and presented to demonstrate and assess changes in Namibia during the past three decades.

The Atlas will be the authoritative reference on Namibia’s geography for decision-makers, resource managers, researchers, and students. It will be a vital tool for education and training. Furthermore, the information in the Atlas will be used to promote Namibia and its economic growth.
