The VGGT Popular Version for Communal Land Administration was developed to support the Parliament of Namibia in delivering training to traditional authorities and regional institutions to enhance their capacity to administer communal land within their jurisdictions. This was carried out in line with the Communal Land Reform Act, Act 5 of 2002 and the resolutions of the 2nd National Land Conference.

These issues which were validated by the MAWLR are discussed briefly and followed by identifying key messages of the VGGT that are relevant within the context of communal land administration in Namibia.
