WINDHOEK: The 16th Namibia Rangeland Forum is set to take place at Arebbusch Lodge in the capital from 11 to 13 September this year.
The forum will be taking place under the theme ‘Bush Encroachment – an Asset or Liability?’.
Agra Professional Services, which is organising the event, said in a media statement availed to Nampa today considerable effort has gone into the development of Namibia’s National Rangeland Management Policy and Strategy.
The statement said the challenge is now for the farmers to implement this strategy in a comprehensive and well-planned manner.
There is currently a huge interest in the combating of bush encroachment and bush utilisation in Namibia, with many companies, farmers and government stakeholders are getting involved in combating bush encroachment, using different methods and with different objectives in mind.
Presentations and discussions at next month’s event will focus on the physiological, socio-economic and ecological aspects of bush and bush control; bush control and utilisation methodologies and practices; and sustainable bush and rangeland management.
