This report examines the impact of community-based natural resource management projects in Botswana, focusing on the communities of Tswapong hills and Sankuyo. The paper reports that CBNRM indicators show that the overall development impact of community-based programs is limited. Around 1.2 percent of the adult population in CBNRM areas is employed through CBOs or joint venture partnerships. The CBNRM benefits amount to a modest amount of around P420 per person per year. However, the report also notes that CBNRM programs have grown rapidly over the past two decades and have diversified their natural resource base to include wildlife, veld products, tourism, rangelands, and rural development.
