Local development capacity strengthened

The Local Economic Development Agency (LEDA) in the Ministry of Regional and Local Government, Housing and Rural Development with the support of the German Technical Cooperation (GIZ) acting on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development hosted the fourth LED Pathfinder conference from 16t to 19 April in Windhoek.
In an overview of the conference outcomes, the Ministry of Regional and Local Government, Housing and Rural Development, said “In recent years, Local Economic Development (LED) has become a prominent element in Namibia’s development strategies. Taking into consideration the Vision 2030 and the National Development Plans (NDPs), local authorities and regional councils will bear greater responsibly to create an enabling environment for the economy to prosper, to generate employment and ultimately to improve the quality of life in the locality.”
