Community-Based Natural Resource Management in Namibia: A Case Study

This positive review of the conservancy program in Namibia ends with several policy recommendations: 1) clarify the process of resolving land use conflicts, 2) devolve additional rights (management of leaseholds within conservancies, 3) do more to ensure the institutional environment is supportive of entrepreneurship, and 4) support additional capacity building
