A journey from the culture to the environment
Borders in Namibia are a source of tension and anxiety. To some, the line between culture and environment is blurred, while to others it is stark and clear. For many, the idea of crossing into another country feels daunting and overwhelming. It can be hard to know where to start when trying to navigate this watery landscape.

How the Borders Affect the Economy?
The borders between Namibia and South Africa have a significant impact on the economy.
The two countries are neighbors and share many of the same resources, so the presence or absence of a border has an important impact on the way the two economies function.
1) Reduced trade: As South Africa shuts off its borders with Namibia, it would be less able to import goods from Namibia and would have to find other ways to purchase goods from Namibia. This could lead to a decrease in income for both countries and a rise in prices for goods imported from Namibia.
2) Reduced access to capital: If there is no border between Namibia and South Africa, companies unable to do business in either country may find it difficult to raise money. This could cause small businesses and individual entrepreneurs to struggle, leading to decreased economic activity and increased poverty.
3) Health concerns: The presence of a border between two countries can also increase the risk of cross-border conflict. For example, Crimea – an autonomous region within Russia that is de facto part of Ukraine – contains several stretches of disputed territory which make it vulnerable to attack by both Russia and Ukraine. If these boundaries were to change significantly, this region would be at risk for instability and conflict.
What is the Border?
The Namibian border is a long and maze-like barrier that separates the Namibia Republic from the South African Republic. It is also the only international border in Namibia.
The borderline between the two countries is bordered by the Zambezi River to the north, the Kalahari Desert to the east, and Namaqualand to the south.
Borders affect the economy in a number of ways. The most significant impact is on the number of goods and services available to consumers in each country.
Additionally, the borders also affect the environment. The Borders have an indirect effect on the population by causing people to move away from certain areas or stop working altogether.
In addition, Borders have an indirect effect on the economy by affecting production and exports.
