Questions related to Namibia
I am looking for companies that have experience with construction of household/farm-scale constructed/treatment wetlands in
- Eastern/southeastern Botswana,
- South Africa (around Pretoria and Cape Town),
- Namibia (Windhoek region) and
- Ghana (Kumasi region)
It would be about subcontracting the construction of horizontal subsurface flow systems for greywater/domestic wastewater/dairy farm washwater as part of an EU-funded Innovation project. If anyone can recommend some to me in the respective regions I would be very thankful!
I am a researcher coordinating a project on the use of encroacher bushes for animal feed in Namibia (https://www.facebook.com/Bush-to-Feed-Project-UNAM-104063237124512/). As part of the research we are measuring the tannin content of the bushes and we need to purchase a standard (quebracho tannin).
Can anybody in Southern Africa recommend a supplier?
We are trying to calibrate/validate our predictive productivity/erosion model (APEX) against multi-year productivity data for Kenya and Namibia. Erosion measurements also needed. FAO datasets do not provide raw values, so are not good for us. We are looking for ground measurements in any location throughout either Kenya or Namibia. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Some South African lions present unique phenotypic traits, including a white coat and light blue eyes. To the best of my knowledge, the only populations presenting such characteristics are located in the Kruger National Park and Namibia.
Considering the characteristic savannah environment, I was wondering why alleles that lead to such phenotypic features are not negatively selected by natural selection. Indeed, a white coat may be disadvantageous for predators as they are most easily detected by prey. I assume that such alleles were "fixed" in the populations as a consequence of genetic drift. So, maybe, white lion small populations are still capable to persist because of poor genetic flow among (meta)populations?
Thanks in advance.
I'm particularly concerned with the need to allow post-conflict societies to charter their own meanings and solutions rather then being given conceptual templates (of reconciliation and justice) imported from other contexts. Do these imported templates not hinder meaningful self-actualisation of these societies, by giving them concepts they cannot process to meaningfully transform their structures and systems? Added to that is the aspect of identity, that only within the context of self-generated meanings which the people have grappled with can they reach amicable solutions regarding the way forward. The question is focused on Namibia and South Africa, post-apartheid.
I have obtained a second original report of the CARAP 1980: Countrywide animal and range assessment project, Botswana. DHV/ITC, Amersfoort. 7 vols + maps. The maps include vegetation, wildlife and San distribution maps, valuable for environmental change studies.
I am willing to send the volumes to an interested researcher, archivist or institution in Botswana, Namibia or South Africa in that order of priority.
The biochar is currently being made with a Kon-Tiki kiln. What ratio of biochar and compost is suitable for addition to sandy soils in Arid climate? (we are planning for 15t biochar + 40t compost) And what are the results expected? I would also like to get an idea on what steps are important from this whole process?
A research proposal in Logistics and Supply Chain challenges based on Namibia. Most of the research articles I have read have similar information. Also the same with other research in developing countries. I thought of reading about the Logistics and Supply Chain of countries such as Singapore, China...
I am still contemplating on the working title, questions and objectives.
Any suggestions or recommendations?
I am planing to do a cross sectional study of high risk type HPV in the adult female population of the Kavango East Region of Namibia. I need some form of measurement to ensure quality of this study. Any suggestions?
at the moment I am looking for sectoral data (more specifically the mining sector) for Southern Africa (Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland).
Does anyone have an suggestion for data sets?
Corrupt state owned enterprises lie at the heart of most African economies. Prevailing economic crisis sweeping SACU states for example is largely a result of economic mismanagement, that is largely shaped by the looting of state owned enterprises. Sheer incompetence and corruption is actually pushing SOEs like Air Namibia, SAA et al closer to financial collapse. Corruption in SOEs has been actually unfolding for years, check an article that was published under the title: BETRAYAL OF THE PROMISE.
This question is the title of a book article (van der Eng 2016). The puzzling incompleteness applies to many countries, more so to their rural areas (e.g. Namibia), notwithstanding considerable efforts in terms of budget, manpower, expertise and current technology.
Cadasters were completed two centuries ago at relatively low cost (e.g. a one off 3.3-8.3 ‰ of land tax in Prussia) with mechanical survey instruments, newly trained surveyors, without cars, in road-less terrain within in a decade.
The only recent example of a timely completion of a cadaster that comes to mind is Rwanda.
The Wüstenquell granites are in West Namibia bordering the Namib Naukluft Park [GPS co-ordinates are: S22.37.10 E15.21.30] - south of the Erongo Mountains.
I am looking for the age of this formation.
I believe they are part of the Donkerhoek (Donkerhuk) granite suite and should have been intruded in a period between 550 Ma and 450 Ma (Damara granite - Ordovician to Cambrian). Age of the Wüstenquell granites could be around 520 Ma. as they intruded the Kuiseb schist around 520 Ma ago. Any confirmation?
I am a librarian working for the school of nursing and public health at the University of Namibia. In this regards I want to study to become medical librarian to be able to assist student nurses , lectures and health professionals to access the most current information available on health science topics as well as to offer technical services such as selection of book titles, journals and other health information sources.
Origins, settlement, culture, traditional rule (political organisation), expansion and dispersal, ethnic variety.
Since the taking over of SWA/Namibia by South Africa in 1920, the history of Namibia transformed with the colonial policy. How did the Kavango region fare during this period politically, socially and economically? Any other contributions will be appreciated.
