Nambuko - sustainably produced charcoal from Namibia
The project uses wild invasive brushwood as a sustainable resource for the production of charcoal.
In doing so, it solves two serious problems caused by the invasive spread of wild bushes: the large-scale loss of grazing land and the sinking of the water table. While agricultural productivity is recovering through the rehabilitation of grazing land and groundwater resources, the harvesting and processing of the brushwood creates additional jobs and sources of income for the local population.
The production of charcoal from Namibian bushwood not only protects against illegal logging and deforestation, but also makes an important contribution to rural development in Namibia and the protection of the country's unique flora and fauna.
