Development through enterprise : a pilot study of social and environmental enterprises in Namibia
There is growing interest inside and outside academia in the role social and environmental enterprises can play in sustainable development and poverty alleviation in the Global South. Many of these enterprises operate in both the formal and informal economies, yet research in this area remains nascent. Existing research examining this subject is fragmented with limitations in its spatial coverage and in the issues addressed. In this paper the social and environmental enterprise sectors in Namibia are mapped with enterprise clusters identified. The nature of these clusters is considered with reference to case examples of different innovative business models. This is followed by a wider consideration of some of the characteristics of the social and environmental enterprise sectors in Namibia. Finally attention is given to the legislative, policy and wider institutional environment surrounding these sectors.
