National Aquaculture Master Plan for Namibia - Part 2: Freshwater Aquaculture, Section 1: The Master Plan for Freshwater Aquaculture (2013 - 2023)

Publication Year:

The Government of the Republic of Namibia (GRN) has embarked on an objective programme of post-independence reconstruction to address the legacy of apartheid which resulted in the country having the world's highest inequalities in household wealth distribution. In 2007 the Gini index for Namibia was 74%, 0% being total equality. The nation has initiated a series of initiatives to reverse such inequality through creating a platform for a more diverse economy with the primary objective of increasing economic activity. Freshwater aquaculture is perceived as one such economic activity to address this national objective through a pro-poor programme for inland aquaculture development.
