The Economic Impact of Climate Change in Namibia: How climate change will affect the contribution of Namibia’s natural resources to its economy

— sector: Forestry and natural resource management, Tourism
— theme: Employment and socio-economic policies, Environment and climate
— country: Other Countries
— type: Working Papers

This study is a first attempt to provide some economic indicators of how climate change will affect Namibia. The study aims to assess the likely economic values of some of the most important environmental as well as socio-economic impacts of climate change in Namibia, and also to capture how some of the most important impacts might affect the overall structure of the economy. Due to poor information about likely climate change impacts on specific natural resources, the main focus of this study is the impacts on production in the agricultural sector (the agricultural livestock, crop and subsistence production sectors) together with the tourism and the fishing sectors, which are all important sectors in the Namibian economy.
