President Hage Geingob said that Namibia still has considerable responsibilities to promote policies that focus on combatting desertification as the country remains the aridest sub-Saharan country. Geingob, who is attending the 15th Session of the COP15 in Côte d’Ivoire, said this responsibility can be met by promoting Land Degradation Neutrality targets as part of the country’s sustainable agriculture and food security strategy. According to Geingob, the country experienced at least 12 years of drought since its Independence in 1990.
