This handbook is intended to help exploration and mining projects to minimize their impact on the archaeology of the Namib Desert, a unique environment of global importance to the understanding of the human past. A short introduction to the National Heritage Act is followed by an overview of the archaeological evidence, and a description of the most sensitive elements of the archaeological landscape. With this background and a few principles of site management, it is possible to avoid inadvertent damage to archaeological sites. Also included is an outline of the basic standards for archaeological field survey and assessment devised by the Namib Desert Archaeological Survey.

Life cycle assessment-based environmental product declarations (EPDs) require the inclusion of biodiversity impacts across the entire supply chain. The objective of this study is to test the applicability of a Scandinavian biodiversity assessment tool, developed specifically for use with EPD applications, in an African desert environment, linking the industry types power generation and mining.
