Our Joint Programmes

Sustainable Cultural Tourism in Namibia
Namibia has one of the world’s fastest-growing tourism sectors and its rich cultural and natural heritage offers an excellent opportunity to spur economic development and improve livelihoods. But sustainable and equitable development through tourism is being stymied by two factors: the unequal distribution of cultural resources and the non-recognition of many communities' history and cultural heritage. The Joint Programme worked to integrate culture into national development policies and programmes, targeting in particular disadvantaged indigenous groups and local communities.
Setting things right - towards gender equality and equity
Some of the critical challenges in addressing poverty and securing civil and political rights for all Namibians are inequitable access to resources, low participation of women at all levels of decision making and the lack of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The Joint Programme was designed to improve the welfare of women, children, youths and vulnerable groups in Namibia in a sustainable and significant manner by promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls.
