Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation
Wildlife is one of Africa’s greatest resources and offers opportunities that could help lift millions out of poverty. Yet wild animals are disappearing due to poaching and habitat loss across the continent. Namibia has taken a different road: our wildlife has more than doubled since the 1980’s, thanks to local community action. IRDNC has played a leading role in this African success story since the very beginning.
Today Namibia face new challenges, such as corruption and rapacious external markets for ivory, rhino horn and lion ‘parts’. As a pioneer of the community-conservation approach, IRDNC has never been more relevant.
