United Nations Development Programme Deputy Resident Representative to Namibia, Dr Armstrong Alexis, has said there is a need for urgent collaborative action to revive damaged ecosystems which all people depend on for survival. The Namibia press agency reports that Alexis also highlighted the work of the Integrated Landscape Approach to Enhancing Livelihoods and Environmental Governance to Eradicate Poverty project which was designed to promote a landscape management approach that integrates key agricultural and forest landscapes. The project also aims to reduce poverty through sustainable nature-based livelihoods; protect and restore forests as carbon sinks; and promote Land Degradation Neutrality.
