Digging for Diversification in Botswana

This is one in a series of case studies that illustrates the principles of the Natural Resource Charter.

This case study discusses the diversification of Botswana’s economy away from mineral extraction. Revenues from the country’s vast diamond reserves are expected to decline rapidly in the 2020s, and while the government has pursued efforts to minimize resource dependence, results have been mixed. The study concludes with lessons learnt for other countries pursuing effective resource governance.
