Desert Research Foundation Of Namibia - Water Desk
Water and waste management are increasingly difficult challenges in today's world, especially in remote areas like the Namib Desert where the Gobabeb Research and Training Centre and Topnaar people reside. Our project recommended ways to improve sustainability of water and waste systems at the Centre by introducing biodegradable detergents and better recycling, and to improve sanitation in the Topnaar settlements through better solid waste management. Our recommendations helped the Centre and the Topnaar achieve sustainability in a sensitive desert environment.
