Incomes, Welfare and Poverty

Presentation | People | Projects | Publication

Botswana continues to face a number of serious obstacles to get the economy to a path of viable self-sustaining economic diversification and growth.  For instance, the poverty problems persisted.  Also, the slow growth of formal sector employment could not be compensated for by agricultural employment.  Botswana faced the challenge of managing the scourge of HIV/AIDS and its effect on people and the economy.  To this end, research on poverty, welfare and HIV/AIDS issues is necessary to provide guidance to the policy makers to asses the impact of their interventions. The Poverty unit is tasked with this responsibility.
