Agriculture is the predominant land use in Namibia, where some 70% of the population depends directly or indirectly on the natural rangeland resource for their economic well-being and food security. Beef production is the most important livestock-related activity in Namibia, followed by small stock (sheep and goat) production. Since 1990, the Namibian commercial livestock sector has accounted for almost 70% of the overall annual agricultural output value. This activity is almost completely dependent on the country’s natural rangelands.
