Kavango West Traditional Authority Received Training on Sustainable Forest Management


After having trained Traditional Authority representatives in Zambezi Region, the NSFM-Project visited Kavango West Region again to host another workshop with Traditional Authority representatives of Kavango West Region in Nkurenkuru on 17 May 2022. The workshops are one of the key components of the ‘Promoting Sustainable Forest Management in the Kavango-Zambezi Regions in Namibia’ (NSFM) Project that are aiming at improving knowledge and skills on the concept of Sustainable Forest Management.

The trainer trained 12 representatives of the Kavango West Traditional Authorities on the basics of Sustainable Forest Management and the roles and responsibilities of Traditional Authorities and Community Forests in Sustainable Forest Management. Moreover, deforestation, forest degradation and climate change were on the schedule of that one-day workshop. The participants learned also about forestry laws and policies as well as permits. The most crucial topic of the day was illegal fencing in Community Forests as well as land allocation; topics that cause a lot of misunderstandings in the Community Forests.
