Managing the water buffer: For development and climate change adaptation. Groundwater recharge retention, reuse and rainwater storage
Namibia's North-Central region is characterized by a contrast of drought and floods - with effects of climate change that are more and more felt. Permanent rivers are non-existent and in several areas groundwater is saline. Around one-third of Namibia's population lives in this area. Ongoing urbanisation, lack of sanitation facilities and soil degradation put severe stress on the water resource system. Water supply is severely jeopardized.
