Inhabiting the fragile Kalahari ecosystem for thousands of years as hunter-gatherers, the Juǀ’hoan San established the Nyae Nyae Conservancy, the first internationally recognised land conservancy in Namibia.
At Independence Mr.ǂOma Tsamkxao was elected the Juǀ’hoan Traditional Authority. Deeply committed to egalitarian social processes, Mr. ǂOma has worked tirelessly to promote the institutions and environmental management principles on which the Nyae Nyae Conservancy is based.
Flourishing Diversity #
At the heart of Flourishing Diversity is the understanding that life on earth is possible because of biological and cultural diversity, where each part is equally vital to the whole. Every species, every behaviour, every tradition and every relationship contributes to the continuous emergence of the diversity of life. This intricate interplay animates and assures the ecosystems upon which all life depends.
