Living in Botswana

Named in 1966 following its independence from the British Empire, Botswana is situated in Southern Africa, with 70% of its landscape being dominated by the Kalahari Desert. It borders South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe; it also has a border for a few hundred metres with Zambia. Despite being one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, it has transformed itself from an incredibly poor economy into one of the fastest growing economies in the world. It thus has one of the highest GDPs per capita, highest gross income and high standard of living in Sub-Saharan Africa. It does however face some environmental problems including drought and desertification, making the lives of rural people difficult, of which 95% rely on agriculture to survive, yet less than 5% of the agriculture in the country can be sustained by rainwater. The United Nations Development Programme is working with Botswana against poverty to stop this overexploitation of resources. Botswana’s biggest export by far is in the diamond industry, with raw diamonds accounting for 62% of all exports; this industry has no doubt contributed to Botswana’s growth as an economy, although there is concern and measures being taken to prevent an overreliance on diamond mining.
