This IUCN/FRAME case study evaluates the Living in a Finite Environment (LIFE) Project and the #Khoadi //Hoas and Nyae Nyae Conservancies in Namibia. The USAID-funded LIFE project has been supporting Namibia’s community-based natural resource management (CBNRM) program since 1993. As part of this support, it has directly and indirectly assisted two community-based organizations—the #Khoadi //Hoas and Nyae Nyae Conservancies. This report considers how the LIFE Project support to these conservancies has contributed to the aims of Namibia’s Programme to Combat Desertification (NAPCOD) and to implementation in Namibia of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). Overviews of desertification in Namibia, NAPCOD, and the LIFE Project are provided, followed by the results of CBNRM activities in the conservancies considered in more detail.
