Bruno Venditto (CNR-ISSM): "Exploring Namibian’s Underground Built Assets: Should they receive a “Heritage” status? “
Namibia underground assets are largely untapped considering the fundamental role that culture and heritage play to promote national and local development. It is hence important identifying, protecting and managing those assets.
When deciding on a course of action, one must be cognisant that the sites cannot be moved in order to preserve them, they are non-renewable heritage resources which remain for the future generation only for as long as the authority cherish and protect them. The most sustainable way to protect these sites is to have local community as caretakers who should see them as resources. If wisely cared for, they can become an important archaeo-tourism destination and educational centre.
