Title:

Keep Namibia's wildlife on the land! Understanding the conservation benefits of wildlife use in Namibia

Publication Year:
2014
Abstract:

In Namibia, most communal land (around 40% of the country) and privately-owned land (around 43% of the country) is used to generate a living for the land holders. Livestock herding, crop production and game management are the main land uses. Conservation outside national parks therefore means giving wildlife a tangible value so that people keep it on the land - rather than eradicating it in favour of livestock or crops.
