Summary
The Government of the Republic of Namibia has identified land degradation as a serious problem which demands remedial intervention. It has recognised that integrated sustainable land management strategies are needed to effectively address the underlying causes. Existing efforts on-the-ground are obstructed by a series of barriers, which undermine their efficacy. Although the government has been, and remains, fully committed to combating land degradation, insufficient capacity at systemic, institutional and individual levels, and inadequate knowledge and technology dissemmination are constraining the effectiveness of interventions and the sustainability of outcomes. Five Ministries, namely the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, Ministry of Environment and Tourism, Ministry of Lands and Resettlement, Ministry of Regional and Local Government and Housing and Rural Development, and the National Planning Commission - have agreed in conjunction with the GEF and its Implementing Agencies, the European Union, GTZ and NGO community to overcome these barriers through a Country Pilot Partnership for Integrated Sustainable Land Management (CPP).

The CPP comprises a suite of interventions to address the underlying causes of land degradation in Namibia. The goal of the CPP is to : Combat land degradation using integrated cross-sectoral approaches which enable Namibia to reach its MDG #7 :“environmental sustainability” and assure the integrity of dryland ecosystems and ecosystem services. The objectives are to build and sustain capacity at systemic, institutional and individual level, ensuring cross-sectoral and demand driven coordination and implementation of sustainable land management activities and to identify cost effective, innovative and appropriate SLM methods which integrate environmental, social and economic objectives. Adapting to Climate Change through the Improvement of Traditional Crops and Livestock Farming (CCA) is a project that aims at enhancing the adaptive capacities of farmers, pastoralists and natural resource managers to climate change in agricultural and pastoral systems in north-central Namibia.

It is a project under Namibia’s Country Pilot Partnership for Integrated Sustainable Land Management (CPP-ISLM), contributing to Objective 2 ; identifying and disseminating cost-effective, innovative and appropriate SLM techniques which integrate environmental and economic benefits.
