Integrated Regional Land Use Plan for the Zambezi Region, Namibia (Land-Use Plan โ€“ Volume 2)

Publication Year:

The Zambezi Integrated Regional Land Use Plan (IRLUP) was commissioned by the Ministry of Lands and Resettlement (MLR) in March 2014 as part of its mandate to undertake land-use planning for the entire country. One of the main objectives of IRLUP, as set out by the MLR, is to correct previous deficiencies in land-use planning in Namibia and against this background, MLR (as custodian of land and land related issues) commissioned the Modelling Integrated Regional Land Use Planning Process. The new approach was first piloted in the two southern regions of Karas and Hardap. These processes were tested, refined and put into practice with the third land use plan for the Kavango Region. The Zambezi IRLUP is based on the new approach of bottom-up planning involving local stakeholders in the planning and creation of a Geographical Information System (GIS) database.
