    Namibia, Southern Africa

    Achieving cooperation in natural resource management is always
    a challenge when incentives exist for an individual to maximise her short term
    benefits at the cost of a group. We study a public good social dilemma in water
    infrastructure provision on land reform farms in Namibia. In the context of the
    Namibian land reform, arbitrarily mixed groups of livestock farmers have to share
    the operation and maintenance of water infrastructure. Typically, water is mainly
    used for livestock production, and livestock numbers are subject to high fluctuations

    Namibia, Africa

    Describes a long-standing grazing dispute in northern Namibia that provides critical lessons on the challenges that people living in communal areas face to secure their land rights. Several large livestock owners illegally enclosed community rangelands to secure grazing for their own commercial cattle herds. The communities used legislation to defend their land rights: they mobilised relevant government and traditional authorities to intervene, resulting in a court order for the removal of most of the illegal cattle owners.

    Eastern Africa, Tanzania, Southern Africa

    In pastoral societies women face many challenges. Some describe these as a ‘double burden’ – that is, as pastoralists and as women. However, pastoral women may obtain a significant degree of protection from customary law even if customary institutions are male-dominated. In periods of change (economic, social, political), this protection may be lost, and without protection from statutory laws, women are in danger of “falling between two stools” (Adoko and Levine 2009).

    Zambia

    Zambia remains committed to the socio-economic development planning of the country as reflected by the return to development planning in 2005. The Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP) for the period 2017- 2021 is the successor to the Revised Sixth National Development Plan, 2013-2016 (R-SNDP) following its expiry in December 2016. The Plan, like the three national development plans (NDPs) that preceded it, is aimed at attaining the long-term objectives as outlined in the Vision 2030 of becoming a “prosperous middle-income country by 2030”.
