Titre : Namibia Protected Landscape Conservation Areas (NAM-PLACE)

Pays : Namibie

Durée : 2010 - 2015

Domaine d’intervention : Environment & Sustainable Development

Partenaires : Ministry of Environment and Tourism-Directorate of Environmental Affairs, Ministry of Lands Resettlement, Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry

The Namibia Protected Landscape Conservation Areas Initiative (NAM-PLACE) is a five year project established by The Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET), with co-financing from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as the Implementing Agency.

Since its inception in November 2011, NAM-PLACE has undertook to lift barriers for the establishment of a large scale network of protected landscapes and in so doing address the threats to habitat and species loss on a landscape level approach. The project aims to establish new Protected Landscape Conservation Areas (PLCA) and also to formalize already existing ones by introducing collaborative governance structures.

NAM-PLACE aims to ensure that : •Namibia’s biodiversity and ecosystem values are conserved and continually provide sustainable benefit flows at local, national and global levels. •Through the introduction of collaborative governance structures, land uses in areas adjacent to existing Protected Areas are compatible with biodiversity conservation objectives, and •Corridors are established to sustain the viability of wildlife populations.
