INSIDE BUSINESS This news is your business Air Namibia appoints The Dogg as brand ambassador Page 26 Corridor development crucial for economic growth Photo: Emmency Nuukala Lending a hand… The Namibia Fish Consumption Promotion Trust (NFCPT) through its corporate social responsibility programme provided financial assistance to the Ministry of Environment and Tourism to the tune of N0,000, aimed at covering the cost for the production of promotional material as part of an awareness campaign on wildlife protection, wildlifehuman conflict management and protected area management. At the handover were (from left) Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources permanent secretary Dr Moses Maurihungirire, Environment and Tourism Minister Pohamba Shifeta, Deputy Minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources Chief Samuel Ankama and CEO of The Namibia Fish Consumption Promotion Trust Victor Pea. Eveline de Klerk Swakopmund Minister of Works and Transport Alpheus !Naruseb says government knows and understands the role played by roads and corridor development in achieving economic development. !Naruseb was speaking at the official opening of the fourth joint law enforcement operation between South Africa, Namibia and Botswana that is currently underway in Swakopmund. The aim of the workshop was to see how the countries can join forces to minimise crime along the TransKalahari corridor and at the same time ensure efficient flow of trade between the countries. Botswana Minister of Transport and Communication Kitso Mokaila, as well as South African Minister of Transport Joseph Maswanganyi also attended the meeting. !Naruseb said well-developed corridors enhance accessibility, reliability and predictability and are in fact key in the facilitation of trade, which stimulates the economy through various domestic economic initiatives, while minimising risks. “The world economy continues to recover from the significant downturn, and thus gives opportunities to SADC to transform themselves and develop their optimal strategies to sustain the recovery beyond the crisis, and optimise trade along the TransKalahari corridor,” he said. !Naruseb went on to explain that it is indeed appropriate that SADC countries act in concert to compete in the highly integrated global system, as such economic transformation involves economic integration and comes with the recognition that countries in the region do not compete with one another, but with the world. “This is one of the reasons that lead the contracting parties of the Trans Kalahari Management Committee (TKCMC) to establish the Trans Kalahari Corridor,” he said. UN House goes solar … reduces power consumption by half Staff Reporter Windhoek Deputy Minister of Mines and Energy Kornelia Shilunga officially launched the United Nations (UN) House solar panels on Wednesday, alongside leaders of the City of Windhoek (CoW) and the UN in Namibia. Shilunga officiated on behalf of Mines and Energy Minister, Obeth Kandjoze during the ceremony at UN House in Klein Windhoek. As Namibia receives a high amount of sunlight, the UN Resident Coordinator (UNRC) to Namibia, Kiki Gbeho emphasised that the UN’s move towards using solar energy is an opportunity to showcase best practice, in terms of the use of renewable energy in support of Namibian and global efforts to combat climate change. The recently agreed Sustainable Development Agenda identifies clean energy as an integral part of the global strategy to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. “Specifically, Goal 13 of the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) speaks to climate change, while Goal 7, aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all,” Gbeho said. Since the installation in the beginning of May, power usage at the UN House has decreased by approximately 50 percent, which translates to savings of roughly N,000 per month. If the current savings trend continues, coupled with the current effort to monitor power usage around the office, UN Namibia forecasts savings of at least 60% in the next few months. This, over time, will result in significant monetary savings that can be directed to programmatic work as opposed to operational costs. At the launch occasion, Shilunga highlighted Namibia’s great potential in renewable energy, specifically solar power, with its abundance of land, an average of 300 sunny days per year and the second highest level of solar irradiation in the world. Shilunga also emphasised that Namibia is gearing up for a renewable revolution through the National Energy Policy. “Namibia is ready to show the world what can be achieved through renewable energy development. Namibia Photo: Contributed Going green… From left UN resident coordinator Kiki Gbeho, Deputy Minister of Mines and Energy Kornelia Shilunga and Deputy Mayor of Windhoek Fransina Kahungu, at the launch of the UN House solar panels. is ready to take its place as a world leader in renewable energy,” she said. Deputy Mayor of Windhoek Fransina Kahungu, on behalf of Mayor Muesee Kazapua, reiterated the importance of Namibia joining the rest of the world in going green and working towards attaining clean and affordable energy for all. The move towards solar power is one of the many initiatives UN Namibia plans to implement in line with ‘Greening the Blue’, the UN’s journey towards achieving climate neutrality, reducing its carbon footprint and promoting an environmentally friendly office. Besides utilising solar power, UN Namibia is installing energy efficient light bulbs in UN House to maximise energy savings along with its recycling system. In the medium turn, UN Namibia will strengthen water conservation, including through the exploration of the use of grey water for gardening purposes. The UN Namibia family says it will endeavour to create a more mindful and sustainable office environment and calls upon its partners to join hands and emulate similar programmes in their offices.
