PUBLIC ACCESS TO INFORMATION & ICTs PHASE II REPORT Namibia
MetadataShow full item record
Namibia, classified as a lower‐middle income country with a GDP of 4.1%,1 is a sparselypopulated country with a population of 2.1 million and a population density of about 2.5/km. Due to the largely arid and semi‐arid nature of the country, and the large distances between towns, most of the population lives in the larger towns of Windhoek, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, and more than 65% in the smaller towns of northern Namibia. The traditional definition of urban versus rural is therefore not appropriate in this context as resources such as community resource centers, schools, clinics and libraries are largely concentrated within these geographical town areas. More than 50% of all schools (>720 schools), for example, can be found in the north of the country.
