      Planning officials view Namibia’s reduced population growth rate as sustainable based on the country’s economic growth over the past decade. Prior to independence in , Namibia’s relatively small population grew at about 3% annually, but declining fertility and the impact of HIV/AIDS slowed this growth to % by , rebounding to. A single variety of a single crop is planted over a large land area (Leads to same crops being grown year after year) The shift to monoculture farming has led to a reduction in the varieties of crops around the world. __________ are places where seed varieties are stored in order to protect the genetic diversity of the world's crops.

Based on the challenges to food and nutrition security and agriculture in Namibia, as well as the comparative advantages of FAO, this section defines the priority areas of FAO intervention from to to support GRN in achieving its goals of improving food and nutrition security and agricultural development in this.

Sustainable Cattle Production in Namibia The project seeks to enable smallholder communal farmers in Namibia to sustainably manage their livestock whilst commercializing communal livestock in Northern Namibia for local and regional markets.

Namibia is a country with immense ecological diversity. The communal pasture areas in the north of the country are overgrazed and unmanaged.

The cattle herds in the north are generally in poor condition, under-commercialized and used as a status symbol or as “walking saving accounts” for communal livestock families. The Fifth National Development Plan (NDP5) is the 5th NDP in the series of a total of seven (7) National Developmnet Plans that are to implement and achieve the objectives and aspirations of Namibia's long term vision (Vision ).

In sequence, NDP5 will be the third five year implementation vehicle towards VISION NDP5 will be. Livestock constitute an important natural resource for the Southern African Region, with over 60 % of the region’s total land area suitable for livestock farming, contributing significantly to Food Security across the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.

The LDS was developed to address the need to enhance equitable access and participation in agri-culture, improve global competitiveness and profitability, and ensure sustainable resource manage.

Namibia: export success Despite Namibia’s agriculture sector contributing only 11% to the national GDP (World Bank, ), livestock accounts for almost 80% of the agricultural GDP (FAO, ).

Namibia trades 90% of its marketable livestock and livestock products; about half is destined to the EU and the other half to South Africa.

Goal 2: Zero hunger The number of undernourished people has dropped by almost half in the past two decades because of rapid economic growth and increased agricultural productivity.

Many developing countries that used to suffer from famine and hunger can now meet their nutritional needs. NAMIBIA'S northern communal areas (NCA) extend over nearly square km (22% of Namibia's land surface) and house approximately 1,2 million of its people (55%).

Sustainable Food and Agriculture: An Integrated Approach is the first book to look at the imminent threats to sustainable food security through a cross-sectoral lens. As the world faces food supply challenges posed by the declining growth rate of agricultural productivity, accelerated deterioration of quantity and quality of natural resources.

Financial support for the transition to, or maintenance of, sustainable agriculture is largely dependent on tools that manage the risks inherent in reliance on nature for a return on investment. Tools used in sustainable agriculture financing include a wide range: “Classic” governmental programs such as subsidies and tariffs.

Because three-level production is very efficient in providing food for livestock, less land is required for a given amount of animal production. More production per unit area of land can result in less greenhouse gas emission in the world [ 18, 86 ].Cited by:   (Image from Farm Africa) Engaging youth in agriculture has been a prominent topic recently and has risen up the development agenda, as there is growing concern worldwide that young people have become disenchanted with agriculture.

With most young people – around 85% – living in developing countries, where agriculture is likely to provide the main source of income it is vital that.

The Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change listed high-priority policy actions to address food security, including integrating food security and sustainable agriculture into global and national policies, significantly raising the level of global investment in food systems, and developing specific programs and policies to.

Toward this end, five priorities areas were identified and programmes developed: Programme 1: Promote sustainable agricultural sectors, first and foremost food value chains, and develop agribusiness in order to improve the income of farmers and other operators in the sector; Programme 2: Improve the management within the food and.
