Project General Description

The proposed intervention will finance technical and other support towards strengthening institutional and human capacity of National Council of Higher Education (NCHE).

The intervention is in line with the Bank's Ten Year Strategy (2013-2023) through its support to knowledge generation and integrating inclusive growth in its investment agenda. The provision of grant resources from the MIC Fund forms part of the efforts by the Bank Group to establish a pipeline of operations in Namibia.
