“The three main components of NILALEG are to improve environmental governance, sustainable management of our natural resources and enhance livelihoods for poverty eradication in our rural areas through nature-based enterprises,” remarked Pohamba Shifeta, the environment minister.

Alka Bhatia, the UNDP resident representative commended NILALEG for catering to almost all the Sustainable Development Goals in terms of addressing social, economic and environmental challenges.

Five of the beneficiaries are from the Namibia University of Science and Technology’s (Nust) faculty of natural resources and spatial sciences, and will be pursuing a doctor of philosophy in natural resources sciences qualification. They are: Paulina Naupu, Epfania Sheyavali, Clarence Ntesa, Kamuhelo Lisao and Johannes Munango.

The candidates expressed their profound gratitude to the various stakeholders for the funding.

“The research projects the candidates will be working on all have links to the main goals of the NILALEG project. This too is well aligned with NUST’s strategic goals, specifically the one which focuses on driving research, innovation and entrepreneurship. The university is working tirelessly to grow its student profile, particularly at postgraduate level,” remarked Nust vice-chancellor Dr Erold Naomab.

In their studies, each of the beneficiaries will investigate topics that range from determining the impacts of nature-based enterprises or ecological restoration.
