Assessing the Angola-Namibia border in the age of environmental and sanitary disaster
The Angola-Namibia border has been historically a place of intense mobility and socio-economic exchange among local populations in both sides of the border. However, in recent years we have witnessed a dramatic shift in the situation, motivated in first place by the intense cycle of drought which has affected several communities in different sections of the border, and since early 2020 the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to severe restrictions the mobility of local populations in both countries. Reports from the field indicate a situation of humanitarian disaster, with extreme food insecurity, animal loss and human displacement in many provinces. Through this project, we want to gain knowledge about the situation on both sides of the border.
