Botswana Strategy for the Development of Statistics (BSDS) - 2015 - 2020
Statistics constitute an essential element in improving the ability of government to develop appropriate policies, manage the economic and social development processes, monitor improvements in the living standards of the people and report back this progress to the public using solid evidence as part of the government’s accountability framework. Furthermore, statistics are needed by nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), private sector, academia, analysts, the media, as well as regional and international organizations. Consequently, very robust systems and capacity are critical for generation of statistical information as well as for data storage, security, and retrieval by key stakeholders and development partners.
