New in HOORC’s Library: Environmental assessment of the livestock sector in Botswana

The report of Component Three of a study prepared for the Botswana Ministry of Finance and Development Planning on the viability and long term development strategy for the beef sub-sector in Botswana has been deposited in HOORC’s library. Focused on the relationship among livestock farming, wildlife and natural resource management, the report acknowledges that “the days of rapid livestock expansion, driven by borehole expansion and ranching, are over and the sector’s future lies in increasing productivity of existing livestock grazing areas, especially from ranches and cattle post areas.” You can read the recommendations made in Final report : environmental assessment of the livestock (beef) sector in Botswana : livestock, beef and natural resource management.
