Abstract

Namibia's farmland is currently overrun by invasive bush, which threatens wildlife and cattle. Our project goal was to contribute to the sustainability of a bush-to-electricity industry by designing accommodation trailers to attract and retain workers, as well as by recommending proper land aftercare systems to ensure sustainability of Namibian farmland. We developed several flexible trailer designs to comfortably house rural workers in a variety of fields. We also recommended aftercare systems that allow farmers to significantly increase their land productivity.
