Namibia and Botswana Need to Work Together on Shared Climate Issues

Namibia and Botswana should look to common solutions for common problems, like the prevailing water shortage and the desalination of seawater for human consumption, as some of the challenges that need urgent attention, says President Hage Geingob.

Geingob made the remarks on the first day of a two-day State visit to Botswana, where he spoke about the common problems facing the two countries.

He said the challenge of desalinating seawater for human consumption should be tackled through Namibia’s own resources, as well as tapping into regional developmental finance institutions and global initiatives, such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
