The fourth volume of the Namibia TEEB Study aimed to understand the proximate and root causes of observed rangeland degradation in Namibia in more recent decades, and based on this, identify feasible options to incentivise biodiversity-friendly, sustainable rangeland management practices on all types of freehold rangelands. The study was based on a desktop review, discussions with key informants, farm visits and a stakeholder workshop.  From this, a set of ten recommendations were made to incentivise conservation on freehold land.
