DUNDEE Precious Metals Tsumeb Vice President and Managing Director, Zebra Kasete reaffirmed the company’s support to the global community with a donation of N$20 000, 2000 water bottles and close to 1000 pens.
Namibia’s Ministry of Environment and Tourism, will host the 2016 African Drought Conference from the 15th to 19th August under the theme, ‘Enhancing Resilience to Drought Events in Africa.’
The event is celebrated annually on 17th June.
The upcoming conference will be a follow up to the 2013 high level meeting on National Drought Policy that was held in Geneva. By supporting World Day to Combat Desertification, Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb yet again demonstrated its willingness, to back Namibia both locally and globally. The move will ensure a better tomorrow for the world at large, says Dundee.
With this donation, Dundee says it was in support of President Hage Geingob’s Harambee Prosperity Plan’s chapter 7, that recognises Namibia’s future to be intertwined with that of Africa and that climatic conditions in Namibia remain volatile, impacting both agricultural output and food security at a household level. The upcoming conference will be attended by representatives from Namibian institutions engaged in drought management, United Nations agencies and development partners. Other attendees include research institutions, academics, civil society and community based organisations.
Inclusive to the above mentioned groups, the private sector, representatives of the United Nations Convention will form part of the delegation to Combat Desertification.
