In this interview with the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), Dr Colin Stanley, the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research, Innovation and Partnerships, speaks about the multi-million dollar INFORANGE project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).


The interview focused on the groundwork that has been covered to date in the co-designing and development of solutions to improve the efficiency of rangeland-based livestock value chains through machine learning and digital technologies. Colin started by highlighting the complexity of this transdisciplinary project, which involves numerous Namibian partners, not only the computer scientists and the agriculturalists from NUST but also nature experts from the Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF) and key partners from Kenya and Germany. He reported that the multistakeholder mapping at the research sites (Kavango East, Eiseb, and Aminuis) has been progressing well, and preliminary results of the evolution of information flow, needs, and gaps have been identified about rangeland governance.
