Abstract:

In March 2008, February 2009, and April 2011, heavy floods occurred in the Oshakati-Ongwediva area in northern Namibia (see map below)). The Oshakati-Ongwediva-Ondangwa area is regarded as one of the most important commercial, industrial and administrative nodes in Namibia. The urban area of Oshakati which is densely populated was heavily affected. In order to find a permanent solution to the flooding problem in Oshakati, the Ministry of Regional and Local Government, Housing and Rural Development (MRLGHRD), in 2008, appointed the Buro of Architecture (BAR), a Belgium based consultant to compile a long term concept master plan for the town.
