The African country of Namibia takes sustainability seriously. Namibia is the first country to add the protection of the environment to its constitution. Furthermore, Article 95 of the constitution states “The State shall actively promote and maintain the welfare of the people by adopting … policies aimed at … maintenance of ecosystems, essential ecological processes and biological diversity of Namibia and utilization of living natural resources on a sustainable basis for the benefit of all Namibians, both present and future.” This country is pretty impressive!
National parks and game reserves take up almost seventeen percent of Namibia’s land. If you include private organizations and community groups, then that percentage goes up to over forty percent of the land being protected. The country also has a marine protected area and the government is looking to add further to it. Namib-Skeleton Coast National Park is in the process of being added, which will cover the whole coast of Namibia. To read more about this coastal project, do a search for Namibia Tourism.
One of the few countries in Africa with growing populations of the highly endangered black rhino is Namibia. The government has helped this happen by promoting sustainability. Hats off to you, Namibia!
Namibia is also key in a development to protect wildlife and habitat across borders of different countries. Transfrontier Parks is what the development is called. The first Transfrontier park was formed in 2003. South Africa’s Richtersveld National Park with /Ai-/Ais Hot Springs Park a well as Hunsberg Conservation Area in Namibia are now connected through this development.
