Project Management Support

The Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF) has successfully delivered a wide variety of projects over the last 25 years and thus continues to be a core part of what we do. NNF has over 60 projects that it is implementing, managing or administering. These include small local initiatives, national programmes and regional projects. All of these projects or programmes are carried out in collaboration with other organisations such as government and NGOs. We have a broad and detailed knowledge of the Namibian environment, biodiversity conservation and sustainable development issues, and extensive experience of project and programme planning, development, management and administration.   
 
Our highly collaborative approach ensures wide ranging stakeholder engagement, input from experts and close working relationships with government departments, at both national and local levels. NNF partners with other non-government organisations (NGOs) and educational institutions and can call on a wide range of experienced associates to enhance and complement the NNF team. We also have vast experience with donors from all over the world.

"The Namibia Nature Foundation has been a cornerstone partner to CEPF since we began making grants in the Succulent Karoo Biodiversity Hotspot in 2004. Not only did NNF’s work lead to the creation of Sperrgebiet National Park, NNF was the leading entity for contact with South African organizations and thereby, an important link in fostering transboundary conservation."
