Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation IRDNC Caprivi Charity Profile
Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation (IRDNC) is a field-based non-governmental organisation and registered trust. It evolved out of a pioneering partnership with community leaders in the early 1980s to end the massive commercial and subsistence poaching of black rhino, desert adapted elephant and other species then taking place in the north-west of Namibia, formerly Damaraland and Kaokoland, now the Kunene Region.
Thus IRDNC's focus changed from implementing community-based projects to providing a technical, logistic and financial support structure for communities themselves to implement conservation and development.
