On 27 September, the Namibia University of Science and Technology (Nust) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Namibia signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

The MoU is based on mutual areas of support and is aimed at building capacity at Nust to provide research and analysis on key developmental issues that touch on economic, social and environmental challenges.

The common areas of interest are informed decision-making for national development, evidence-based analytical perspectives, policy direction and Sustainable development Goal (SDG) achievements.

These fit well within the timeframe of the Fifth National Development Plan (NDP5), as well as the global SDGs.

Alka Bhatia, the UNDP resident representative, mentioned the agreement is a significant milestone in their ongoing collaboration.

“For years, UNDP has partnered with academia and we have directed our focus and expertise on evidence-based research,” she said.

Several priority areas will be focused on and the expected key outcomes of the MOU will include:

· Evidence-based research and analytical ‘peer-reviewed’ products or papers.

· Paper contributions to and participation in the national processes for SDG reporting.

· The organisation (co-hosting) of events such as conferences dialogues, roundtables and workshops.
