Southern Africa”. The project stems from the NELGA (Network of Excellence on
Land Governance in Africa) Initiative on promoting demand driven research on
land policy issues and connecting scholars and researchers across Africa through

the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST), Department of Land
