A game of trade-offs: achieving Namibia's Vision 2030
Date: 3 November 2015
Time: 10h30 - 12h30
Venue: Seminar room, Hanns Seidel Foundation, House of Democracy, 70 - 72 Dr Frans Indongo Street, Windhoek

Namibia has set clear targets in both its National Development Plan (NDP4) and its long-term development strategy, Vision 2030 – but will current social and economic constraints hinder the country’s ability to achieve these goals?

Using the latest International Futures population forecast data, this seminar will assess Namibia’s NDP4 and Vision 2030 and identify factors that could inhibit development in the next 15 years. Three scenarios will then be presented to show Namibia’s potential futures depending on which sectors are prioritised.

The full results are published in an ISS paper that will be launched at the seminar. Copies will be made available for distribution.

Chair: Graham Hopwood, Executive Director, Institute for Public Policy Research

Welcome and introduction: Jakkie Cilliers, Executive Director, Institute for Security Studies

Presenter: Steve Hedden, Researcher, Institute for Security Studies

Respondent: Hon Tom Alweendo, Director-General, National Planning Commission and Minister of Economic Planning
