Botswana has embraced sustainable development as its development approach, and is fully committed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, its principles, goals, targets and indicators. This report provides an overview of Botswana's progress in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) since their adoption by member states, with a focus on the theme - “Eradicating Poverty and Promoting Prosperity in a Changing World.” The report has been prepared with the full participation of Government, private sector, civil society, local authorities, development partners, UN, academia and other interest groups.

This is followed in Section three by a description of the processes through which the domestication of the SDG agenda proceeded. Section four highlights the main initiatives implemented to achieve SDGs 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, and 17, contributing to poverty eradication. It also presents the challenges encountered in these efforts. The report concludes by highlighting emerging issues and policy implications and some of the lessons learnt in trying to eradicate poverty.
