In Southern Africa, ESTDEV focuses on development cooperation in Namibia in the areas of e-government, education, and business development. We support Estonian companies and organizations that help develop the ecosystem of Namibian start-ups based on the Estonian experience. We also promote young people’s digital competencies and increase their opportunities to participate in the labor market. Finally, we have supported the availability of climate change and environmental education in schools.
From 2009–2021, Namibia was supported through various development cooperation and humanitarian aid projects, amounting to nearly 450,000 euros in funding and six implemented projects. Four of these ongoing projects support young people’s digital literacy, e-learning solutions, and e-government capacity building.
