Combatting Climate Change, Supporting Biodiversity Conservation and Benefitting Local People at Mombo, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Anna Spenceley, STAND Ltd

Summary

Mombo Camp is located on Chief’s Island in the Moremi Game Reserve within the Okavango Delta of Botswana. This case study explains how the camp has dramatically reduced its carbon emissions by converting its power from diesel generators to 100% solar energy, and made substantial contributions to black and white rhino re-introductions in the country. Through its lease fees, employment, and procurement, the lodge has also made substantial contributions to the local and national economy during the course of its concession period.
