Abstract: Public policy in Botswana is aimed at reducing poverty through broad-based economic growth, specifically through employment creation initiatives. However, public policy in Botswana also recognizes that economic growth is not a sufficient condition for poverty reduction. As such, a number of social safety nets (SSNs) have been introduced to assist the very poor and vulnerable groups in society. In this study, a comprehensive review of SSNs in Botswana is carried out. The study draws from interviews and focus group discussions conducted with SSN beneficiaries, key informants, programme implementers and the 2002-03 Household Income and Expenditure Survey (HIES), to examine a number of issues relating to delivery, administration and effectiveness of the existing SSNs.
