Distribution of Economic Activities  

The Kunene River basin countries – Angola and Namibia – rank among the most important economies in sub-Saharan Africa. Mineral resources make up a great percentage of their respective national gross domestic products. Other sectors, such as agriculture, construction and services, also play an important role. Despite the relative wealth of the two countries, income and employment are still very unevenly distributed among the population and across provinces and regions.

To explore the distribution of economic activities in the basin countries, please see Angola and Namibia country sections. The distribution of economic activities within the Kunene River basin is illustrated in Economic Activities in the Basin.

Roads are important drivers of socio-economic activities.
