Virtual Webinar:

Namibia: Natural Resources, Equitable Development & Corruption

Namibia, bordering the South Atlantic Ocean in Southern Africa, is rich in natural resources from diamonds and uranium to fish and zinc. Its middle-income status belies high socioeconomic inequalities and corruption, the latter from the micro level up to national and transnational dealings.

Join TraCCC for a virtual webinar, with our Community Solutions Program (CSP) Fellow, Allen Muketela, presenting an overview of corruption in Namibia, including in the realm of natural resources and the impact of graft on equitable development.

 

About the Speaker:
Allen Muketela is a 2021-22 Fellow from Namibia in the Community Solutions Program (CSP), a U.S. Department of State sponsored leadership and exchange program implemented by IREX that brings early- to mid-career changemakers between 25-38 years of age and from over 90 countries. TraCCC is pleased to be Allen’s virtual CSP Practicum host. His practicum focus is on the nexus of corruption and equitable development in his country, particularly in the Zambezi region. Allen was one of the founders of a prior youth initiative, the Zambezi Anti-Corruption movement. He is an entrepreneur and experienced facilitator and career guidance and financial literacy mentor for junior and secondary schools.
