University of Malawi Polytechnic is NELGA Partner
The Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) is the Southern African node, which hosts the NELGA. The purpose of NELGA is to enhance the role of selected African Universities and academic institutions in support of land policy development, implementation and monitoring.
Currently, two partner institutions in the University of Malawi, which includes Chancellor College, are conducting a Country Scoping Study on Land Governance in Southern Africa.
The team comprises Dr. Edward Chikhwenda and Mr. Bester Kasowanjete of the Department of Land and Surveying and Physical Planning at Polytechnic and Ass. Prof. Patrick Kambewa and Dr. Regson Chaweza of the Department of Economics at Chancellor College.
NELGA is supported by the German government under the program “Strengthening capacities for land governance in Africa (SLGA)”. NELGA is established to anchor a program for training and research on land policy development, implementation, and monitoring in Africa, and to foster cooperation of African governments and institutions on land-related issues.
