Title Erosion Control in Otjomuise, Namibia
Publication (Day/Month/Year) 2008
The settlements in Windhoek, Namibia are plagued by erosion problems resulting
from severe rainstorms and inefficient use of rainwater. This project focused on the
community of Otjomuise, and how various erosion control measures can be implemented
to reverse the effects of erosion and utilize rainwater for productive purposes. Working
with community members we constructed several structures that served as replicable
demonstrations for residents of Otjomuise and surrounding settlements. By working
alongside the community we helped mobilize an effort toward erosion control and
prevention and effectively improved the sustainability of future projects
