  • LANDSCAPE CONSERVATION AREAS’ LAW ENFORCEMENT MANUAL

    Law Enforcement Brochure - roads-camping-littering-fires-trespassing

    Given the capacity of the area’s tourism, the stakeholders within the Greater Sossusvlei-Namib Landscape (GSNL) are confronted with management issues related to the tourism industry. These issues are specifically related to the conduct of the tourists in the area, and strict management implementation is necessary to uphold the environment and socio-economic status of the area. In pursuit of this, the landscape recognised the need to enhance law enforcement capacity in the area i, with the emphasis on educating NAMPOL on the relevant laws applicable to the regulation of tourism activities within the landscape, as well as on how the landscape members can complement NAMPOL’s efforts by exploring what powers landscape members have in terms of the law.
