The Role of Macroeconomic Policy Towards Food Security in Botswana
"The main objective of this study is to analyse the role that macroeconomic policy in Botswana has played towards the achievement of food security. This will be used as a basis of identifying whether agriculture has adequately played its role. The paper will also investigate whether individuals and social groups at risk have access to food based on overall food availability or supply, and whether the ability to acquire it is adequate. Rapid urbanisation has resulted in a significant amount of waste water worth reusing in emerging agricultural potential areas. Land use planning for potential farming areas may be reassessed to include incentives for best uses of land to enhance production and generate employment. Finally, the study will look closely at the potential role that agriculture can play to enhance the attainment of food security objectives. Emphasis will be on sustainable agricultural projects and how they may be realised."
