Namibia farmers and other stakeholders will come together to deliberate on strategies for rebuilding amid prevailing drought in the country at the Agricultural Outlook Conference scheduled for Oct. 8 in Windhoek.

Namibia Agricultural Union spokesperson, Rena Hough, on Friday told Xinhua that they expect around 350 to 400 attendants as registration is currently underway.

According to the union, topics such as the future of farming in Namibia, the marketing policy for recovery, how to recover financially, innovative thinking to adapt and mitigate, a recovery plan for grazing and accelerated income will be discussed at the conference.

Meanwhile, a group of farmers from different sectors from livestock to horticulture, wildlife and tourism will also share their strategies for surviving in this time of crisis.

The prevailing drought in Namibia has been the most severe in recent years, which has led the country’s President Hage Geingob to declare a state of emergency in May and the government allocating millions of dollars towards alleviation efforts and programs, the Union said. Enditem
