Year 2022 Namibia


This Climate Crowd report summarizes findings from 45 interviews conducted with communities residing outside conservancies and national parks in Namibia’s Zambezi region. Settlements included Machita, Zilitene, Kabbe, and Ikaba. We interviewed 21 women and 24 men. Interviewees included traditional authorities, crop and livestock farmers, fishers, thatch and reed harvesters, and settlement elders. We asked them about the impacts of climate change on community livelihoods, natural resources, and biodiversity, as well as how they are responding or adapting to these impacts.
