Summer Desertification Programme


The Summer Desertification Programme (SDP) – a two months research methodology course offered by the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia and Gobabeb Research and Training Centre

For 18 years, the DRFN cooperating with the Gobabeb Research and Training Centre, has implemented a summer programme designed to give 10-15 recent UNAM and Polytechnic graduates a hands-on experience of critical thinking while carrying out a field oriented research project. Over the past 18 years funding came from a variety of sources, most recently the Environmental Investment Fund. Students from all faculties are invited to apply.

The objectives of the programme are to equip Namibian students and recent graduates with experience and training in integrated sustainable land management through applied research approaches, critical thinking and problem solving.
