Notes to broadcasters on water management

We often hear stories of farmers suffering from lack of water. But farmers in the very dry region of northern Namibia are used to little rain, and plant crops which are suited to this, such as millet and sorghum. Heavier than usual rains have brought new challenges in recent years. But the villagers in this story did not sit by and watch; instead, they began to dig.

Here are some related news items from Namibia:
