Supporting the implementation of the Communal Land Reform Act in Namibia
A short term assignment was commissioned to IECN in supporting the MLR, MCA, GTZ Communal Land Support project which was being rolled out in 6 regions in Northern Namibia.
A registration strategy was drafted and will be tested in collaboration with the Traditional Authorities, Communal Land Boards and the Ministry of Land and Resettlement (MLR) soon. Key issues revolve around registering and granting land rights in commonage areas, without disrupting critical large-scale and mobile rangeland management practices. The Millennium Challenge Account (MCA) supports the Government of Namibia with project support of US$304.5 million. The International Services of the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ IS) was commissioned to assist MLR and MCA with the implementation of this specific programme component.
