Environmental Conservation and Protection: Environmental Support Programme, Botswana.

Client: United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
Team Leader for final evaluation:  Liz Kiff.

Year:  2010

The Environment Support Programme, a collaborative activity between the Government of Botswana and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), sought to address national institutional and human resources capacity limitations, environmental policy deficits and the lack of a comprehensive environmental information system. The overall outcome of the programme was:
to enhance effective protection and management of Botswana’s environment and natural resources, so as to obtain maximum benefits to be shared by the country’s citizens on a sustainable basis”.
This was to be achieved through the implementation of activities under three interlinked components which aimed to improve environmental governance, natural resources management and environmental information management.
