Botswana’s economic growth is projected to moderate to 4.1 percent in 2022 following a 12.1 percent rebound last year. Despite the headwinds created by COVID-19, economic growth surpassed expectations. Structural policies to deliver a stronger, resilient, equitable and sustainable recovery remain key to tackle among others the unemployment rate of 26 percent and the projected poverty rate of 56.6 percent in 2021, based on the upper middle-income country poverty line.
