Namibia Statistics Agency (NSA) will, this Thursday, complete the training of trainers to undertake the Namibian agriculture census.
This will be followed by the training of enumerators in all the regions, which will commence next Monday (27th January).
In collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, the NSA-planned census is the second of its genre and will kick off mid-February. The first census was conducted 10 years ago.
The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) provided a N$3.4m grant to supplement Government in carrying out the census.
Last December, NSA conducted a two-week pilot survey across the 14 regions just to ensure all systems were in place and count-attack all issues that could erupt during the main census.
