The Botswana Institute for Development Policy Analysis takes pride in having been involved in the development of new Vision 2036 for Botswana. BIDPA had been engaged by the Botswana government, through the National Strategy Office, to be part of the secretariat for Presidential Task Team (PTT) on the development of Vision 2036 for the country. The Institute provided technical support and project budget management for the PTT. The BIDPA team in this project comprised Professor Patrick Malope, Dr Molefe Phirinyane and Mr Johnson Maiketso, and the team participated in the development of the new National Vision 2036 document which was launched in September.

The new vision is expected to catapult the country to new levels of achievement in the socio-economic and political space as the nation marches towards the year 2036. The 2036 Vision is anchored on four pillars, and these are: Sustainable Economic Development, Human and Social Development, Sustainable Environment, and Governance, Peace and Security. The vision was arrived in response to three broad questions; what kind of Botswana do we want to build by the year 2036? What kind of person would a Motswana like to be in 2036, and lastly in order to achieve these dreams and aspirations, what should be done, and by who? According to the Vision 2036 document, this Vision and its complementary National Transformation Strategy will act as a compass that directs the nation to the ultimate goals, and will also help us to weigh competing alternatives and make strategic choices, prioritize and manage trade-offs. Vision 2036 builds on the first national vision, Vision 2016 (1996-2016)

The Vision 2036 PTT was launched by His Excellency President Lieutenant General Dr Seretse Khama Ian Khama in October 2015 and was chaired by Mr Neo Moroka. BIDPA is proud to have been involved in this important national project, more so that the Institute was also involved in the development of the first national vision, Vision 2016 and also served as its secretariat.
