Botswana is a landlocked, semi-arid country. It covers a
geographical area of 582,000 km2. The country is located in the
centre of Southern Africa and shares its borders with South Africa,
Namibia and Zambia. It has a relatively sparse and ethnically
homogeneous population of about 1.7 million people according to the
2001 Census. Over the past two decades, the population growth rate
declined from 3.5 per cent between 1981 and 1991 to 2.4 per cent
between 1991 and 2001. Over 80 per cent of the population is
concentrated in the southeastern part of the country because it has
relatively more favourable climatic and soil conditions. Most of
the country lies within the Kalahari Desert, and consequently only
5 per cent of it is suitable for arable production.
