Strategically Located Land for Agriculture

The key deliverable of this project was a methodology to identify strategically located land based on defined criteria and to develop a Spatial Decision Support System for use by the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform (DRLDR) during decision making processes in acquisition and allocation of land to support land reform in South Africa.

The identification of strategically located land would assist the DRDLR to assess existing land portions as well as inform planned land acquisition transactions leading to an increase in the percentage of productive land transferred to beneficiaries and also inform potential land acquisitions.
