EIF had its 2019/2020 Annual Plan Performance Review and 2020/2021 Annual planning session in Swakopmund, Erongo Region, 17-20 February 2020. During the awards of the 2018/2019 performances review the Communication and Corporate Services department was awarded as Best Performer for the year, Department of Finance and Administration was awarded as Most Improved Performer and EDA-CBNRM was awarded as Best Performing Project Award Certificate. The various departments and projects will have the opportunity to present the achievements, challenges and opportunities during the year under review and set new targets for the year to come. The team also had an opportunity to visit Farm Shalom. Farm Shalom is a tranquil small holding alongside the Swakopmund River, just 10 KM outside Swakopmund. The farm produces a rich variety of vegetables, herbs and flowers including olives through the modern use of greenhouse technology as well as drip irrigation and media cultivation that allow a more efficient use of limited water and nutrient resources. The farm supplies fresh vegetables and cut flowers to local households, restaurants and groceries as well as hotels around the Namibian coast line. The Annual Plan Performance Review and Planning session ends on the 20 February 2020.
