15. November 2019, inke - Economics

Namibia has experienced an increase in natural disasters in recent years with northern areas having to cope with floodwaters in 2008-09; and the drought since 2016 is proof of the opposite extreme. Namibia is regarded as the driest country in sub-Saharan Africa with low and erratic rainfall. Namibia’s history of water supply development spreads over a hundred years. The water of its few perennial rivers, Kunene, Okavango, Zambezi and Orange is shared with neighbouring countries.

Namibia makes gains with poverty reduction

25. October 2019, inke - Economics

The signboard east of Windhoek with the name “Otjivero” written on it might just direct travellers to another small settlement one would think. But Otjivero, as well as the adjacent Omitara, attracted international attention about ten years ago, when a unique pilot project took off. The names of these two tiny settlements have become household names on an international level in the true sense of the word when it comes to the debate about poverty reduction through a universal basic income.
