Botswana is a new priority country in terms of Estonian development cooperation. Estonian companies have been contributing to the construction of Botswana’s e-state for many years, but by making Botswana a priority in development cooperation, we can support Estonian companies and organizations operating in Botswana all while creating sustainable and systematic digital development in the country.

In 2022, ESTDEV will focus on learning more about the Botswanan context and will map partners and opportunities to apply Estonian expertise to Botswana in priority areas. As of September 1, 2022, there are no ongoing projects in Botswana.
