Abstract:
Similar to most semi-arid countries in Africa, Namibia is experiencing a significant increase in its population that is placing ever-greater demands on the county's scarce water resources. This thesis seeks to explore the effectiveness of Namibia's current water resource management progress. I was fortunate to be able to travel to Namibia to conduct interviews to measure the effectiveness of Namibia's new water policy reforms. Additionally, I was able to observe actual physical changes that indicate Namibia's new policies are affecting change. I believe the data I presented in the thesis will demonstrate that Namibia has made positive steps in managing its precious water resources for a sustainable water future.
