Martorano, Bruno, Ortrun Merkle, Alex Hunns, Giulio Bordon, Cintia Denise Granja & Francesco Iacoella, Jul 2021, Inequality in Botswana; An analysis of the drivers and district-level mapping of select dimensions of inequality, Botswana is currently one of the most unequal countries globally, having the 9th highest Gini coefficient, indicating the degree of inequality of incomes, according to the most recent UNDP report (2020). Both theoretical and empirical studies have shown the negative effect of inequality on long-run growth, poverty reduction, social and political stability. The issue of inequality in Botswana has received limited attention historically from both research and policy perspectives. This study was therefore commissioned by UNDP, in an attempt to assist Botswana in understanding the drivers of inequality beyond income, as part of Botswana’s commitment to implement SDG 10 targets, More information
