Mariental, Namibia experienced a severe flood in 2006.The Mariental Flood Task Force concluded that reeds in the Fish River contributed to the flooding and need to be removed. This report, prepared for the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia, investigated using the reeds for income-generating activities. We investigated the characteristics of the reeds, the market potential for reed products, and evaluated the interests of the stakeholders in participating in a reed business initiative. The results showed the reeds have potential for generating income.
