Botswana and UN Signs Deal for Sustainable Development Cooperation

On Thursday in Gaborone, Botswana’s government and the United Nations (UN) adopted a UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework, which will drive the country’s economy for the next five years. 

Inequality, sustainable use and management of varied natural resources, climate change mitigation, and food security are all intended to be addressed by the new framework.  

These call for a long-term, fair economic path that eliminates inequality, poverty, and unemployment while simultaneously promoting accountability, transparency, and anti-corruption measures. 

The signing of the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework for Botswana, according to Minister of Finance and Economic Development Peggy Serame, is a true reflection of the cordial relationship that has existed in Botswana for more than five decades between the Government of Botswana and the United Nations family. 

“Building Back Together for Peace and Prosperity” was the theme of the 76th United Nations Day.
