Abstract:This study examines the economic impact of desertification in the communal areas of Uukwaluudhi, a former district within Omusati Region, one of four regions into which the area of former Owamboland in northern Namibia was divided following independence. As a result of population growth and increasing human settlement during this century, the natural resources of the Owambo area are under severe pressure, and a variety of land degradation processes are under way, principally deforestation, rangeland degradation due to overgrazing, and declining fertility of arable land.
