Odendaal, W. 2011. Land Grabbing in Namibia: A Case Study from the Omusati Region, Northern Namibia. Paper presented at the International Conference on Global Land Grabbing, 6-8 April 2011


Description:

The aim of this paper is to examine through a case study some of the emerging trends around the changing dynamics of power relations within rural communities in Namibia as a result of the emerging of new elites and how subsistence farmers access to communal land and its natural resources are threatened in the absence of poorly implemented land reform policies.

Summary / Notes:

Large scale land acquisitions by foreign investors in Africa for agricultural purposes continue to capture attention worldwide. In recent years Namibia has received some proposals from multi-national agricultural corporations to develop large scale irrigation projects, mainly in Namibia's water rich northeastern regions. However, to date none of these proposed large scale projects have materialized. But, while foreign investors might not have been making headways into acquiring land in Namibia's communal areas, another form of "land grabbing" driven by politically well-connected locals is taking place.
