The Namibia Agricultural Mechanisation and Seed Improvement Project’s (NAMSIP) is a stand-alone investment Project aimed at improving cereal-crops/grains and livestock value chains. It has been designed in line with MAWF’s Harambee Comprehensively Coordinated and Integrated Agricultural Development Programme (HACCIADEP : 2017). The HACCIADEP aims at stimulating high quality production and market access for crops and livestock products especially from small and medium scale farmers and agro-processors. NAMSIP will contribute to the attainment of HACCIADEP’s 2 schemes, namely (i) agricultural mechanization scheme, and (ii) seed systems development scheme, which are key for sustainable crop and livestock value chain improvement. The present project will enhance dryland crop production, irrigated crop production, State Owned Enterprises (SOEs), and Private Sector operations through effective utilisation of agricultural machinery and equipment for livestock production, and processing which can be used as launch pads for SME driven industrialization. It has 2 components, namely : (a) Value Chain Improvement ; and (b) Institutional Support. The project will be implemented nationwide by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry (MAWF) over a period of 5 years. The total cost is ZAR 1.42 billion

The Project will directly benefit 294,500 crop producers/farmers (157,558 female and 136,942 male), and also 10,000 livestock farmers (including 2,500 women livestock farmers). In addition, 33 extension and veterinary staff will be trained in agricultural mechanisation inorder to ably transfer knowledge and skills to the beneficiaries. The Project will fully support 111 farmer cooperatives with a total membership of 10,681 of whom 6,912 will be women. The Project will generate 111,240 jobs for men, women and youth in agricultural production and processing. The Project will also indirectly benefit about 800,000 people along the cereal and livestock value chains.
