Botswana has made remarkable progress against the targets of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Protocol on Gender and Development set for 2015. While Botswana has not yet signed the SADC Gender Protocol, legislators in the country remain committed to its ideals and targets. Botswana did make a commitment to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2015. The SADC Gender Protocol goes a step further in setting out a detailed roadmap for the achievement of the MDGs. However, President Ian Khama of the Republic of Botswana said that Botswana would not sign the SADC Gender Protocol because the government considers some its time frames unrealistic, “and some of the measures have serious resource implications that we cannot guarantee.À

The Botswana 2015 Gender Protocol Barometer is the fifth annual tracking report of the country’s performance against the 28 targets of the SGP set for 2015. The Botswana Council of NGOs (BOCONGO), in its capacity as the country focal network of the Southern Africa Gender Protocol Alliance, led the research effort and will disseminate the report.
