Report OverviewThe Republic of Botswana has a
range of social security programs which cover the
countrys citizens, as well as people belonging
to poor and vulnerable groups in rural
communities. According to the National Policy for
Rural Development (Government of Botswana - GoB,
2002), the aim of these programs is to reduce
poverty and provide a social safety cover to all
Botswanan individuals. These include the
Universal Old-age Pension, the Orphan Care
Program, the Labor-Based Drought Relief Program,
Supplementary Feeding for Vulnerable Groups, and
the Program for Destitute Persons. The Botswana
Federation of Trade Unions (BFTU) is the workers
labor federation representing the countrys
laborers. In 1997, Botswana published a document
now known as Vision 2016, which projects that
poverty will be eradicated in the country by
2016. Pensions play a vital role in enhancing the
earnings of the countrys workforce after
retirement. The government is also focusing on
improving the social security framework to

Key Highlights Botswana has a fragmented and
unsystematic social security system. Pensions
play a vital role in enhancing the
post-retirement earnings of the countrys
workforce. Most public and private sector
employees, and of parastatal institutions in
middle and senior levels, are covered by the
Botswana Public Officers' Pension Fund
(BPOPF). Government employees who are not
covered under the BPOPF are covered under the
unfunded pension plan, which is financed from
government revenues. Senior managers at trade
unions are given extensive non-wage benefits,
such as car, housing and entertainment allowances
to avoid the government salary limit on
parastatal pay.
