Description:

Grazing rights in Namibia's communal areas: A case study of a local land grabbing dispute in Western Kavango region.

Summary / Notes:

While conflict and competition over land is a major trend in Africa, and there are allegations of 'land grabbing' of large areas of land from local people, usually by foreign companies, other more localised forms of competition over land are less well understood. This paper presents the case of disputes over grazing land between local communities in Northern Namibia and pastoralists/herders who entered the area and engage in allegedrnillegal grazing and fencing of communal land for their large herds of cattle. Fencing off of communal land (without authorisation) is forbidden in Namibia by the Communal Land Reform Act.
