Windhoek - The High-Level Panel on the Namibian Economy (HLPNE) has said that there is a need for Namibia to develop its Climate Diplomacy strategy to align it with the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and other countries.

The Climate Diplomacy strategy is concerned with cross-cutting climate, environment and development issues with the end game of establishing innovative forms of engagement.

In the High-Level Panel on the Namibian Economy final report, the Panel say through such Climate Diplomacy strategy Namibia can work with global partners to develop international carbon markets as a key tool to create economic incentives for climate action and ensure that it benefits therefrom.

The report states that this strategy will position Namibia as the key champion of the “Green Marshall Plan for Africa.”

Information contained in the report further states that from a branding perspective, Namibia can work towards being the “Hub of Green Economy Innovation in Africa” through the recommendations as mentioned above.

It is also recommended that Windhoek can be the host city for an annual international green climate and renewable energy trade fair and exhibition for investors, businesses, professionals, advocacy groups and members of the public.

The objective of the trade fair and exhibition includes the following; putting Namibia on the map as the hub for Green Economy innovation in Africa; creating a platform to share international best practices, research and development and new technologies driving climate change ecosystem; informing all interested parties (investors, pension funds, companies, organisations, politicians, civil servants and the public) of new products, systems and services in the green economy; and encouraging society to embrace
