Lecture by Prof Rob Marchant (University of York, UK) and Prof Sheona Shackleton (University of Cape Town, SA), on January 29th, 2020 at NUST Auditorium 1.
The Integrated Land Management Institute is a centre of the Faculty of Natural Resources and Spatial Sciences (FNRSS) at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) committed to develop reputable and multidisciplinary research and public outreach activities in the field of land, administration, property, architecture and spatial planning.
It was originally established 2006 and conceived as an arm of the Department of Land Management in order to undertake applied research, consulting services, and training courses.
As from 2015, activities at ILMI will be guided by the Land, Livelihoods and Housing programme, while remaining open to new collaborative research, training, and outreach activities.
ILMI is governed by a Charter and an interim board composed of Prof. Mutjinde Katjiua (Chair), Dr. Rolf Becker, Prof. Alinah Segobye, Mr. Phillip Lühl, Mr. Samuel Hayford, Ms. Kristy Asino, and Mr. Kaleb Negussie. The coordination of ILMI activities is undertaken by Dr. Guillermo Delgado, together with a team of collaborators varying per project. Ms Muna Anguwo is the project administrator.
ILMI has a space at the Department of Land and Property Sciences (DLPS) and most events currently take place at the Seminar Room of the Department of Architecture and Spatial Planning (DASP) (you can find HERE directions to the venue). Smaller events and meetings take place at the CLPS House (see directions here).
The Department of Land and Property Sciences (DLPS) has recently been recognised by the African Union (AU) through the Land Policy Institute (LPI) as a Centre for Excellence in Land Governance for Africa (NUST - NELGA Hub).
