Botswana Allows Farmers to Keep Wildlife to Boost Agro-Tourism

In a move expected to encourage locals' participation in agro-tourism, President Mokgweetsi Masisi has said his government will allow farmers to keep small game, adding that it is paramount for them to have a stake in the industry. Tourism is a significant contributor to Botswana's economy, employing nearly 100,000 people, but the impact of COVID-19 has been devastating, with all bookings cancelled for the rest of the year, leaving many people jobless.
