The Namibian landscape consists generally of five geographical areas, each with characteristic abiotic conditions and vegetation. There is some variation within, and overlap between, the geographic areas, namely the Central Plateau, the Namib Desert, the Great Escarpment, the Bushveld, and the Kalahari Desert.
The Namibian coat of arms is the official heraldic symbol of Namibia. Introduced at the time of independence in 1990, it superseded the earlier coat of arms used by the South African administration of the territory.
PESA is an independent think-tank promoting regional integration in SADC and providing research on the political economy of development in Africa.
