Namibian Economic Policy Research Unit (NEPRU)

Autonomous non-governmental research organisation set up in 1990. Aims include assisting the government of independent Namibia through research for policy formulation and decision-making in strategic macro and socio-economic areas; building an information resource base on Namibian affairs; training Namibians in relevant skills. Research focuses on Namibia but increasingly includes other parts of the Southern African region. Main research areas include:
  • trade, regional integration and small and medium sized enterprise promotion
  • poverty, HIV/AIDS, livelihoods and employment
  • agriculture, land and rural development
  • macroeconomics
  • public finance

Although NEPRU’s work concentrates on Namibia, the unit is increasingly involved in research throughout the Southern African Region.

Several publications are available on the website, including full texts of Namibia Economic Review and Prospects; Namibian Business Climate Survey; research reports; working and occasional papers; and their Quarterly Economic Review of Nambia (part of a series called NEPRU Viewpoint).
