Zimbabwe's experience in restructuring institutions to support communal farmers: lessons for Namibia
Namibia's independence in March 1990 provides a unique opportunity to examine Africa's collective experience in restructuring agrarian institutions to support communal farmers. This paper begins with an examination of the basic conceptual issues in strengthening the institutional base for communal farmers. It goes on to focus on Zimbabwe's experience in this sphere since independence in 1980.
