To let you know what is going on with the host at the salon I would like to tell you about my research project in Namibia. My plan is to conduct research for my master’s thesis at the HNE as an intern with a Namibian NGO or other organisation like the Ministry of Environment and Tourism in 2012.

The research idea is to find out how political processes on the community level regarding Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) can be furthered and optimised. The aspect of empowerment of people is important for me.

Some interesting topics could be indigenous peoples, the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA), sustainable community development, grassroots democracy or Transboundary Natural Resource Management (TBNRM). Of course I am open to any other research fields suggested by interested organisations as well.

I have already contacted several Namibian organisations and got an invitation from one of them to contact them again during my three weeks preparatory stay in Windhoek which I will have later this year. During that stay I want to get deeper knowledge about the country and its people.

I want to use the time to go to libraries, talk to experts and people on the street as well as other tourists and make one or two tours to the countryside. But first of all I will visit all organisations of interest in Windhoek to apply for an internship. I am looking forward to getting to know Namibia!
