There is a need to map out a common vision in order to have a common pull within the agricultural industry. To this effect the Namibia Agricultural Union (NAU) will be hosting an Agricultural Outlook Conference slated to take place in Windhoek on 8 October 2019.

Farmers as well as other stakeholders are expected to come together to deliberate strategies on rebuilding after the drought prevailing in Namibia. The prevailing drought has been the most severe in recent years and has led President Hage Geingob to declare a state of emergency and government allocating millions of dollars towards alleviation efforts and programmes.

“Everyone is welcome and NAU is calling on all farmers and role players in the agricultural industry to attend this meeting. Come and talk about how to rebuild after the drought. The programme is packed!” said the farmers' union in the newsletter.

According to the union, the day will start with a motivational talk from well-known personality Brand Pretorius.

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

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.
