This book explores the socio-economic causes of environmental degradation in one Sub-Saharan African economy. As the Botswana economy nears the end of a long mineral boom, the problem of policy-induced environmental degradation is becoming more pressing. It is also becoming more similar to experience elsewhere in Sub-Saharan Africa. Agricultural subsidies, the use of agricultural development programmes as a vehicle for income support, and high rates of population growth are common causes of environmental stress. The lessons they have for Botswana are valuable elsewhere in the developing world.
