Known for being a trendsetter in higher education and applied research internationally, the Namibian University of Science and Technology (NUST) aims to become the leading university in Africa. The Department of Land and Property Sciences (DLPS) offers relevant degrees at undergraduate and post-graduate level including master and doctorate degrees. The Department of Land and Property Sciences (DLPS) at NUST together with the Integrated Land Management Institute (ILMI) are playing a leading role in research and outreach in the field of land governance and administration.

The purpose of NELGA (Network of Excellence for Land Governance in Africa) is to enhance the role of selected African Universities and academic institutions in support of land policy development, implementation and monitoring. NUST was selected as a NELGA node for Southern Africa, because of its proven leadership and track record in academic education, training and research on land governance. To date NUST as a regional NELGA node has granted 6 scholarships (4 masters and 2 PhD’s) on land governance via the DAAD scholarship. The node is in the processes of identifying partner institutions for full implementation of the NELGA activities. One of the key work packages is to establish a regional node for NELGA Southern Africa.

Secure tenure and registered land rights are widely believed to be necessary for access to credit, well functioning land markets and economic development.
