Research and Publications about EE/ESD

Title: Retention of EE/ESD learning and attitudes of participants, over six months: The Case Study of NaDEET Centre, NamibRand Nature Reserve, Namibia

Author: Melba Monique Van Wyk

Summary of Findings: The main results found for this study was that water, energy and waste were the themes that highly impacted participants. The research showed that there was an affiliation between things learned at NaDEET and things implemented at home. More females were influence by the water and energy themes than males, but males were influence by the waste theme. 


Title: NaDEET Coastal EE/ESD Baseline Survey

Author: Panduleni Haindongo 2019 (Environmental Educator and Communications Officer)

Summary of Findings: The study found that EE/ESD activities between schools and EE/ESD service providers are not widely accessible or continuous. The coverage of different EE/ESD topics through the existing programmes lacks diversity as it excludes some key topics. Limiting factors of schools and EE/ESD service providers in achieving their EE/ESD objectives were revealed through the study with lack of financial resources being the main barrier.


Title: A School Survey on EE/ESD Activities in the Erongo Region
Author: Laura Alhassan 2019 (Bachelor of Natural Resources Management – Namibia University of Science and Technology, NUST)
Summary of Findings: The study established that EE/ESD is misunderstood and not properly implemented in schools and due to various limitations, many schools participate in limited EE/ESD activities. Municipalities from the towns of Arandis, Henties Bay, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay were identified as key players in the EE/ESD activities provision through the different events and materials they provide.


Title: An Assessment of the Awareness, Knowledge and Attitudes of Swakopmund Residents Towards Sustainable Development
Author: Toini Amutenya 2016 (Bachelor Degree in Natural Resource Management - Namibia University of Science and Technology)
Summary of findings: Using closed questionnaires on awareness, knowledge and attitudes, this study found that children and young adults scored lower in awareness, knowledge and attitudes for environmental protection when compared to elders who received environmental education through the old education system. Although there were no statistical differences in the levels of awareness, knowledge and attitudes, educating adults could influence the behaviour of children and youth.


Title: Programme Evaluation Informing Environmental Education- EEASA Conference Paper
Author: Viktoria Keding 2003
Summary of findings: This paper begins by looking at an EE Centre and programme located in the Otjiwarongo area for youth. A brief discussion about the nature and structure of the EE programme is given, followed by a description of an informal programme evaluation undertaken during 2002.
