A Development Dynamic for Botswana, Africa



BY BUILDING SCHOOLS, THE ANGLICAN DIOCESE IS CONTRIBUTING TO A STRATEGICALLY PLANNED AND INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT DYNAMIC FOR BOTSWANA

Botswana is a true gem of Africa. The size and shape of Texas, it has grown from a cattle post country to that of a middle - emerging market economy.For more than three decades, Botswana has had an extraordinary record of development, which can be attributed mainly to the following:

  • Democracy and good governance;
  • International goodwill
  • Policy activism towards priority development

 

However the country is heavily reliant on Diamonds. Consequently, leadership implemented and committed to a strong diversification policy. But the pace of diversification has been slow and five other problems - all related to the structure of the economy - have dogged Botswana's development. All of which need to be tackled head on for the impressive gains to continue to be consolidated.

These are in no particular order:

  • Inequality
  • Unemployment
  • Poverty
  • Excessive dependence on the state
  • A slow pace of citizen economic empowerment.

 

To transform itself from its current state and to continue to build on the country's past successess, Botswana must first create and sustain a development dynamic to move towards an Information and Entrepreneurial Economy.

The following four elements are singled out as critical in achieving Botswana's Development Dynamic:

  • Quality Technology Rich Education and Training
  • ICT Infrastructure
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Trade and Investment
