Institute full name:

University of Botswana

Institute acronym:

UB

Institute profile:

Located in Botswana’s seat of Government, Gaborone, the University of Botswana was established in 1982 by an Act of Parliament. It is presently the only public university in the country, although a second one will be opening soon some 300km north of Gaborone. The University is closely involved in the development process of Botswana through human resource development, basic and applied research and consultancies. The principal UB partner Department for DESIRE is the Department of Environmental Science, but the team includes collaborating researchers from the Okavango Research Institute and the Botswana College of Agriculture. The Department of Environmental Science is a multidisciplinary Department with experts in both the human and physical environment areas. The Department has been involved in two previous 3-year EU-funded research projects on subsistence livelihoods and policy options for the sustainable development of communal rangelands and communities in Southern Africa.
