Local Stakeholders

OMDis was created to stimulate local economic development, focusing on both SME’s and large scale industries that can exist mostly independent of mining activity in the future.

It does so in close partnership with other key Town Transform stakeholders:

  • Namdeb is the incumbent mine seeking responsible and integrous socio-economic mine closure through various activities, of which the creation of OMDis is one.
  • Oranjemund Town Council (OTC) is responsible for lobbying the public sector, for creating an investor-friendly environment, including investor incentives, and for ensuring affordable access to land and services
  • OMD 2030 is a unique citizenry association created specifically to involve, represent, educate and support the community of Oranjemund through its transformation

OMDis, in partnership with Namdeb, the OTC and OMD 2030 work in close collaboration to ensure a sustainable economic future for Oranjemund.
