"This assessment of the Remote Area Development Programme (RADP)identified problems of implementation and suggested ways of solving them.It attempted to clarify the issues that bear upon the attainment of programme goals; with particular emphasis on presenting choices open to the Government with regard to the future of the RADP. The report concluded that the RADP had remained largely unchanged since its inception. Chapters were presented as follows: Social services: extension of basic services (education, health, drinking water, vulnerable group feeding schemes) to remote areas. Economic: access to land; water rights; income generating opportunities for remote area dwellers. Political/Legal: self reliance; reducing dependency; social integration;awareness of rights.It concluded by stating that extension of social services, and the economic objectives, were both feasible though not particularly different from general national policy that sought to bring services to all the citizens of Botswana."
