Abstract

This report was to further develop the trade component of the Natural Resources Enterprise Programme (NATPRO). The field work was undertaken in Malawi, Zimbabwe, Namibia, the Republic of South Africa and the United Kingdom between 9th January and 25th February 2006. The work concentrated on ten countries in Southern Africa with potential to export significant quantities of natural products. These products are defined by the project as follows: being plant derived, occurring naturally, wild harvested or cultivated in situ, sustainably harvested and pro-poor. Eventually eight sample natural products with significant commercial potential were chosen to represent the sector. These are baobab, kigelia, marula, ximenia, trichelia, Kalahari melon, manketti and parinari.
