Rapid Strategic Environmental Assessment of the fourth National Development Plan and Associated Policies and Strategies in Namibia
This ex-post rapid SEA was conducted in four weeks and provides an illustration of only the key environmental and social issues and concerns that an NDP would need to address. It aims, therefore to help identify gaps that may need to be addressed in implementing NDP4 and to provide a platform for further analysis in developing NDP5. A full SEA for a complex subject such as an NDP would normally take many months in order to examine the full array of issues and engage systematically with stakeholders. This assessment reviews NDP4, Vision-2030 and associated sector policies and strategies in the context of sustainable development. Sector implementation plans were not part of this exercise.
