Developments in Namibia's Kavango region
AllAfrica.com has recently featured news from the Kavango region in Namibia. Signing of a concession agreement between the Ministry of Environment and Tourism on one hand and the Gciriku Traditional Authority, George Mukoya and Muduva Nyangana conservancies on the other, will pave the way for the development of tourism facilities in the Khaudum National Park. This is the first such agreement to be signed following the approval of the national policy on wildlife and tourism concession on State land by the Namibian Cabinet in July 2007. The Nambian government also released a policy document, the Kavango Regional Poverty Profile, intended to engage those living in poverty, and to provide them with an opportunity to describe their experiences and present their views on how their lives could be improved.
