Southern Africa: SADC Gender Protocol 2012 Barometer - Botswana

Botswana has made remarkable progress against the targets of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Protocol on Gender and Development set for 2015.

Botswana Council of NGOs (BOCONGO) in its capacity as country focal network of the Southern Africa Gender Protocol Alliance, led the research effort and will disseminate the report.

Although Botswana has not signed the Protocol, the Alliance recognises that the country is constitutionally committed to the Protocol's ideals and targets. Botswana has already made a commitment to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2015; the SADC Gender Protocol goes a step further in laying out a detailed roadmap for the achievement of MDG Three for Gender Equality.
