Proposed Forestry Listed Activities Amendments to the Environmental Management Act and associated Regulations

The GIZ Bush Control and Biomass Utilisation (BCBU) Project has been engaged to take part in participating in the review process of EMA and EIA Regulations as a key stakeholder of the bush based biomass sector. The BCBU Project is a technical cooperation jointly implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry (MAWF) and the GIZ. The Project aims to support Government and private stakeholders to address the bush encroachment problem as one of the challenges of farming community in Namibia. Its primary objective is to develop and improve strategies for bush control in order to upscale de-bushing in the country.
