Abstract

The purpose of this project was to assess community Food Security and Nutrition in relation to health and development on the resettlement farms of Skoonheid and Drimiopsis in Namibia. In living with the communities and conducting group based activities, we have developed a comprehensive understanding of issues including agriculture, animal husbandry, and marketing practices. From these findings we created recommendations on how to sustainably improve the livelihoods of farm residents in addition to a pictorial manual about proper nutrition.
