The Environmental Information System of Namibia has upgraded and expanded its website to include new features and improve user experience. The upgrades include: A new smart home page, new search engine to simplify and speed up e-library searches, a new section on wildlife crime and Environmental Impact Assessments out for public review, and a new citizen science archaeology section.
The aim is to install 20 000 tippy-taps over the next five weeks and to distribute information as widely as possible.
Tippy taps, an invention that consists of a five-litre container filled with soap water and tied to poles, which is then angled against a rope to be used as a pulley as in the picture above, have become a popular alternative for sanitation purposes where water is scarce.
The NCE Triennial Report (covering 2016-17 to 2018-19) has now been published. As well as reports from the Chairman and CEO, it provides an overview of objectives, membership support, policy research and many other aspects of NCE's work.
In 2018 we had 45 applications, this year 108. We have 22 successful candidates in total.
The NCE is offering bursaries and internships for the 2019 academic year to individuals who wish to further their studies in the fields of conservation, environment and sustainable development.
African farmers living in areas with wildlife are faced with a serious dilemma: they cannot sell their healthy, free range beef to the lucrative export market. Current international trade practices dictate that they cannot protect the wildlife and, at the same time, farm their cattle in the same general area. If they want to export their beef to wealthy nations, they will have to get rid of all the wild buffalo or put up environmentally damaging veterinary fences.
Litter is a multi-faceted problem in Namibia and across the world. For this reason, the NCE supported the President’s call for all Namibians to participate in a Nation-wide Clean-Up Campaign which took place on the 25th May 2018. The aim of this activity was to promote a clean environment as part of Namibia’s aspiration to become the cleanest country in Africa.
