Namibie

Titre : Income generation through sustainable Devil’s Claw harvesting in 3 Omaheke conservancies

Pays/Région : Namibie
Localisation : Omuramba ua Mbinda, Eiseb and Otjombinde

Durée : October 2018 - June 2021

Contexte
The conservancies of Eiseb, Omuramba ua Mbinda, and Otjombinde were gazetted between 2009 and 2011 and apart from efforts by the Namibia Nature Foundation in 2014 & 2015 and now more recently in 2018 ; these areas have received little support. Currently, the Namibia Nature Foundation is supporting the conservancies with Devils Claw harvesting.

Objectifs
The overall goal of this intervention is to strengthen conservancy management structures and their ability to manage natural resources, in line with the CBNRM programme and to support better delivery of the Devils Claw harvesting project, whereby managers assist with quality control and buying point coordination and game guards support resource monitoring activities.

The specific objectives are : * To capacitate and empower conservancies to fully explore income-generating practices * To capacitate and empower conservancy managers to work with their committees and the Ministry of Environment and Tourism for better management outcomes. * To capacitate and empower conservancy game guards to work with their managers, committees, and the Ministry of Environment and Tourism for improved wildlife management * Improve wildlife management with an emphasis on mitigating human-wildlife and combatting wildlife crime. * To support conservancy members in deriving income from available resources to supplement cash flows

Financement : Social Security Development Fund, US Embassy, FirstRand Foundation
