About ILLH

The Institute for Land, Livelihoods and Housing (ILLH) is a centre at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) coordinating and promoting transdisciplinary research, outreach and education in the fields of ‘land, livelihoods and housing’

It was originally established 2006 and conceived as an arm of the Department of Land Management in order to undertake applied research, consulting services, and training courses.

As from 2015,  activities at ILLH will be guided by the Land, Livelihoods and Housing programme, while remaining open to new collaborative research, training, and outreach activities. This has been revised with the Strategic Plan 2020-23, which is available HERE. You can also see our list of previous and active research projects in the RESEARCH page. 

ILLH is governed by a Charter and an interim board composed of Prof. Mutjinde Katjiua (Chair), Dr. Phillip Lühl, Mr. Samuel Hayford and Mr. Kaleb Negussie. The coordination of ILLH activities is undertaken by Dr. Guillermo Delgado, together with a team of collaborators varying per project. Ms Muna Anguwo and Ms Emorgen Jansen are the project administrators See "ILMI Governance at a Glance" document here. Research Associates form the core of research capacity at ILMI, you can find a list of associates here.

ILLH has a space at the CLPS House (see directions here) and most events currently take place at the Seminar Room of the Department of Architecture and Spatial Planning (DASP) (you can find HERE directions to the venue).
