Details:Discover exciting things about the Namib Desert while doing an MSc on ecological restoration of mined land!

The Namib Desert, in particular the winter-rainfall Succulent Karoo, is a unique part of Namibia’s national identity and a priceless biodiversity asset. Mining for various minerals could potentially threaten the continued existence of species that occur here and nowhere else on earth. As part of its commitments to a sustainable future for Namibians through the ecological restoration of mined lands, Gobabeb is doing targeted research on the Namib’s natural environment. A key aim is to understand our arid systems well enough to enable future rehabilitation and restoration, and to investigate appropriate rehabilitation techniques.

Namdeb is a Namibian company with a long history of adding value to the Namibian economy through the mining of diamonds in the southern Namib. Namdeb has also made firm commitments to rehabilitate the land that they are mining by restoring ecological structure and function as far as possible.

Namdeb is currently in the final planning stages of a new mine to be constructed at Sendelingsdrif, within the Succulent Karoo (an internationally recognised biodiversity hotspot). As part of this exercise, an ecological restoration plan was developed. The restoration plan identified several urgent questions that should be answered before the appropriate restoration techniques can be finalised. These questions relate primarily to the properties of artificial soil substrates and the biology and ecology of the endemic plant Juttadinteria albata. In partnership with Namdeb, Gobabeb will be conducting Masters-level studies to answer these questions and ultimately use the answers to assist Namdeb in devising appropriate restoration techniques.

If you are a Namibian graduate student of biodiversity or a related field and have a view to further your studies, and if you are interested in the Namib and in working to ensure that it is sustainably utilised, you should consider applying for this project. Depending on the candidate/s, that apply, either one or two projects are possible. Interested persons should send a CV, including a full academic record and at least four academic references, to Dr Theo Wassenaar at theo.wassenaar@gobabeb.org before 25 February 2012.
Deadline:25 February 2012

Position/consultancy:Short Term Consultancy: Support for the economic valuation and revision of the tourism plan for the Sperrgebiet National Park
Organisation:Succulent Karoo Ecosystem Programme (SKEP)
Details:The UNDP/GEF funded Strengthening the Protected Area Network (SPAN) Project and the Critical Ecosystem Programme Fund (CEPF) funded Succulent Karoo Ecosystem Programme (SKEP) are providing park planning support to the Sperrgebiet National Park in preparation for the opening up of the park to tourism related activities.

The Sperrgebiet National Park (SNP), which was proclaimed in 2008, is located in the South-western corner of Namibia, covering 22,000 sq. km. The SNP is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean in the West, the Orange River in the South, the Namib-Naukluft Park in the North and mainly freehold farmlands to the East. Two town lands also occur on the eastern boundary, namely Aus and Rosh Pinah, which currently fall under the jurisdiction of Local Authorities. Two other urban areas are located within the SNP, namely Luderitz, which has its own Municipality, and Oranjemund, which falls under the management of the mining conglomerate Namdeb.

The greater area of the SNP falls within the Succulent Karoo Biome, characterized mainly by winter rainfalls. The Succulent Karoo ecosystem is the most diverse desert system in the world and is one of the world’s top 25 global biodiversity hotspots. The area is known to have high plant, particularly succulent, diversity. Some 1,050 plants are known to occur in the SNP, nearly 25% of the entire flora of Namibia on less than 3% of the land area of the country. The area also boasts some 80 terrestrial and 38 marine mammal species, some 35 coastal and marine birds, almost 60 wetland birds and some 120 terrestrial bird species. Almost 100 reptile species, some 16 frog species and a great number of insects and other invertebrates.

Objective of the assignment: The objective is to assist the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) in preparing a detailed tourism plan that will include new information from new studies undertaken in the park as well as provide estimates and economic data on the tourism concessions that can assist MET in making informed decisions about tourism development and concessions in the SNP. Specific expertise includes market research, tourism potential assessment and economic valuation.

Application and Submission: Interested consultants, institutions or consortia should submit a technical and financial proposal, clearly elaborating their understanding of the tasks at hand, proposed methodology/approach, work-plan, and attach CVs for team members.
