IPA donates data collection equipment

The Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) donated fifteen full sets of rangeland data collection equipment to the Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources Sciences, in the Faculty of Natural Resources and Spatial Sciences.

The equipment, which includes GPS devices, high-precision scales, and rangeland data collection tools, will enable NUST to remain a leader in training rangeland scientists and conducting high-quality rangeland analysis in the country.

The equipment was procured as part of an evaluation of Namibia’s Community Based Rangeland and Livestock Management programme, funded by the USA’s Millenium Challenge Corporation. The handover was conducted by IPA country representative Dylan Groves and three staff members of the University.
“IPA’s evaluation would not have been possible without the well-trained hard working students. We were also able to hire graduates of NUST’s rangeland sciences programme,” Groves said. “We hope this equipment can support a new generation of students and many more research projects to come,” he added.

IPA is a non-profit research organisation dedicated to identifying and scaling solutions to global poverty.
