What We Do
Our work in Botswana is informed by the 2010-2014 Programme of Operation Plan (POP) signed by the Government of Botswana and the United Nations. The POP is aligned with the government’s priorities and long term aspirations for the country and its people as articulated in the 10th National Development Plan (NDP10) and Vision 2016. The GoB-UN POP seeks to guide and harmonise the work of the UN across agencies, in achieving development results that will sustain the growth that the country has so far attained. more
