Résumé du projet
The Ovitoto ECO-C is a two-year project, with the funding for phase one in completion. Thus, the first objective was met, with an Environmental Community Outreach Centre established. Phase II would seek to promote sustainable land management techniques focusing on livestock and grazing management in relation to available water resources. It would aim to train a farming representative from each village in natural resource management with cultural relevance to Herero practices of livestock and land management, which would encourage each village in the community to practise sensitive farming.

Project Objectives
•To promote the use of appropriate technology in the 19 villages of the Ovitoto area, through the establishment of an Environmental Community Outreach Centre. •To increase the awareness, knowledge, and access on a number of appropriate technologies and environmental management concepts. •To encourage the establishment of local “environmentally focused” businesses and in particular to identify business opportunities that would support the wider environmental goals of the emerging Ovitoto Communal Conservancy.
