Introduction to Soil Improvement Techniques
 Background: Was presented on 18th June 2009 at the 25 National Steering
Committee meeting in Namibia.
 This project was approved by the steering committee as for SGP CORE
funding but is considered as a CBA project.

Questions that I would like to ask.
With regard to the
recent floods which
took place 2008 and
2009 raining season the
northern parts of
Namibia, concerning
the Environmental &
Social and
infrastructure affects of
the floods.
What CBA measures
/strategies should be
implemented to:
Minimize the floods damage on crop
production (millets/Mahangu fields)
during floods?
How can pursue linkages and
collaboration with government and
other UN funded Programmes?
