Policy brief Botswana's agriculture and water resources May 2015
This is the fourth policy brief in a series, which is based on the results of Botswana’s recent water accounting efforts carried out by Department of Water Affairs (DWA) and Centre for Applied research (CAR). Earlier policy briefs dealt with ‘scarcity of water resources’ (2013), ‘water and the mining sector’ (2014) and ‘water and irrigation’ (2014). This policy brief on agriculture covers both the livestock and irrigation sectors. Dryland crop production is not covered as it does not abstract water from the environment for the economy.
