Abstract:

The analysis presented in this report suggests that the existing policy framework for promoting livestock marketing in the northern communal areas (NCAs) provides a fundamentally sound basis for action, but, critically, it lacks detail and prioritisation. Policy interpretation and implementation actions by government agencies (of the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry) have focused on free veterinary (including quarantine) and extension services and limited infrastructure development, while that by parastatals (the Meat Board of Namibia and Meatco) has focused on market place development and subsidising producer prices.
