The Namibia Statistics Agency in close collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry is planning and preparing for the next Namibia Census of Agriculture to take place in 2013/14.
The project is funded by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) with a grant of N$4.3million to supplement government in carrying out the census, which will count crop production, cattle as well as small stock at different farms across the country.
