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.
