Sustainable Hardwood use in Namibia – A 200-Year Plan
MAY 21, 2019
As you drive along the long straight tarred road that runs from Namibia’s northern border with Angola to the capital Windhoek and the west African coast you see many roadside craft stalls. While a logger in Namibia may receive €2 per tree, the value of the wood increases at an eye-watering pace as it moves up the supply chain. Also, who wants to be broke with no source of income in as little as 20 years? He is less than 5cm tall, made of wood and from Namibia.
