Botswana’s food and agricultural problems are fully recognized by the government and are considered in its national economic priority agenda. In the November 1985 National Food Strategy paper, the state identified the following three problem areas of the country’s agricultural economy: inadequate domestic food production, inadequate nutrition and access^, and large food import and aid dependence-due to the country’s geographic location, the potential political instability in Southern Africa, and its implication for national food security (Botswana, 1985a).
