NACSO connects the communities and organisations that manage and conserve Namibia’s natural resources
Resources & publications
Natural resource management requires accurate monitoring. We need to know how much wildlife there is, and whether species are increasing or declining.
The CBNRM Programme has introduced innovative methodologies for counting wildlife, and over the years has added other data vital to conservation: vegetation counts, information about conservancy governance, and data used to calculate the improvement in livelihoods through conservation.
Much of this data is aggregated into the figures and tables found in the State of Community Conservation. Data from game counts is aggregated in poster form, making comparisons between years relatively easy. For the scientist or conservation professional, there is a link to the raw GIS data.
From time to time NACSO produces posters and brochures profiling individual conservancies. These can be found here, together with a selection of maps, reports and a wide selection of training manuals used in the CBNRM Programme.
