Study says willing buyer, willing seller still best for Namibia

The “Study into land prices in Namibia” was released on Monday. It was commissioned by Namibia’s land and resettlement ministry and was conducted by Fleefort Muzyamba and Andrew Hilton, with the help of the United Nations’ Food and Agricultural Organisation.
