About: Biological diversity in Namibia. A country study

This book summarises what is currently known of the country's biological diversity at the habitat, species and genetic levels, and how this diversity can be effectively safe-guarded through economic valuation, legislative protection, and policy reform. Chapter 1 is a brief portrayal of the country, its biophysical and socioeconomic environments, and its history of resource conflict and rise to political self-determination. Chapter 2 follows with a detailed account of the country's terrestrial and freshwater diversity at the habitat, species and genetic levels. Chapter 4 outlines imaginative strategies which can turn these constraints into significant assets for the country, particularly in the spheres of ecotourism and other forms of wildlife use. Chapter 5 outlines the development of a revised legislative framework to safeguard Namibia's environment, including its biological diversity. As Chapter 6 concludes, these include the need for better and more accessible basic information on biological diversity; more focused analysis and prioritisation of conservation needs; more explicit data relating to the current harvesting levels of biological resources, and measures to put this harvesting on a sustainable footing; monitoring and evaluation of the biodiversity conservation implications of land use systems in Namibia.
