Standardised national protocol/guidelines for wind energy Environmental Impact Assessments, that can be accepted and endorsed by the authorities and the industry, need to be developed for Namibia as a matter of urgency.

The NamPower/NNF Strategic Partnership and collaborators are organising a workshop to present the BirdLife SA-EWT Best Practice Monitoring Guidelines to the Namibian industry, government, Environmental Assessment Practitioners and other stakeholders, and to explain the need for the monitoring procedures that are being recommended in order to obtain buy-in for the process in principle. The programme will include discussions on the applicability of the SA guidelines to the Namibian situation and a brain-storming session on the pros and cons of the various monitoring methods in the Namibian context, with a recommended way forward for Namibia.

 Please would you indicate whether you would be interested in participating by 6 July 2015.

RSVP to Ann & Mike Scott, email ecoserve@iway.na with your name, institution/capacity, email address and telephone contact details.
