More information than ever, and now available for the first time - Monthly Burned Area reports from the Directorate of Forestry.

The collaboration and  contributions from Government departments, independent experts and citizen scientists continues to grow Namibia’s leading online knowledge repository. With over 9 500 uploaded literature records and almost 5 000 entries on the mammal and carnivore atlas, the Environmental Information Service, EIS , provides valuable data free to anyone with an internet connection.

The latest major contribution comes from the Directorate of Forestry’s National Remote Sensing Centre. The Monthly Burned Area reports are an important source of data on burnt-out areas across Namibia. Used by farmers, scientists and other educational centres this is a valuable addition to the EIS.
