Namibia TEEB: improving conservation outcomes & securing ecosystem services
GiZ through NNF

The “Namibia TEEB Study” was commissioned by GIZ, in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET), and formed part of the larger Biodiversity Resource Mobilisation (ResMob) Project.  The TEEB country study brought together the arguments for and potential mechanisms by which critical investments can be made into key environmental goods and services in different land tenure in Namibia.  This study was awarded to the Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF) as lead agent, working in partnership with Anchor Environmental Consultants, as technical lead.  The study was compiled in four volumes. The first is a national assessment of Namibia’s ecosystem services, and three volumes are on protected areas, communal and freehold lands, respectively.
