Rugged, sometimes bleak or forbidding, and largely uninhabited, the Namibian coast is a fascinating and complex mix of richness and paucity. The warm and dry Namib Desert stands in stark contrast to the cold waters of the Benguela current which is so biologically productive. In combination, the ocean and desert provide a harsh and spectacular environment that remains largely pristine. This environmental portrait is divided into seven chapters namely introducing the coast of Namibia, weather and waters, foundation and landscapes, the coast itself, people of the coast, and economic resources and activities. The last chapter focuses on the balance between conserving the environmental beauties and heritage and the need for propsperous economic activity.
