The objective of the National HIV/AIDS Prevention Support Project is to assist the Government of Botswana to increase the coverage, efficiency, and sustainability of targeted and evidence-based HIV/AIDS interventions through: (i) strengthening the National AIDS coordinating agency's institutional management and coordination capacity; and (ii) financing strategic and innovative HIV/AIDS-related prevention and mitigation activities. There are no changes being made to the project's results and indicators, components, or institutional arrangements. The project's costs, financial management, disbursement, procurement arrangements, closing date, safeguards, and environmental assessment category also remain unchanged.
The project Power Project is now in the pipeline.

The project consists of a 90-MW coal-fired pithead power plant and related transmission and control facilities to create an integrated national electric power system for Botswana. It also includes tariff and organizational studies, training and coal drilling programs and engineering consultancy services. The proposed plan's economies of scale and the substitution of plentiful indigenous coal for imported petroleum products would lower the cost of supplying electricity while increasing security of supply and energy independence and improving Botswana's balance of payments. The project would create about 1,200 jobs during its construction period, and about 120 permanent positions. A map is included.
The project National Land Management & Livestock Project is now in the pipeline.

The project National Land Management & Livestock Project is now in the pipeline. To see more information, see the project information in the World Bank project database

The National Land Management and Livestock Project will strengthen the Government's institutional capability to promote more rational and effective utilization of Botswana's vast and overgrazed traditional rangelands. Specifically, it will: (a) support the Government's long-range land tenure reforms; (b) increase commercial livestock production and improve its efficiency; (c) promote equity through developing assistance programs for small- and medium-scale cattle-holders; (d) encourage improved herd management and range conservation. It will, moreover, strengthen institutions responsible for both livestock development and wildlife management. These objectives will be achieved through provision of credit and skilled management for the establishment of commercial ranches by individuals and groups according to national policy guidelines. In addition, they will be met by far-reaching reform of the system of land-use planning and management; upgrading of trek routes; and technical assistance for institutional coordination, training and extension, project management, range ecology, and analysis of pricing, cost-recovery and taxation policy.

The proposed project will (i) assist the Borrower in arresting the deterioration of the country's rangelands through introducing improved range and cattle management systems on about 100 ranches to be developed on tribal land zoned as commercial; (ii) seek new technologies to benefit small livestock owners through developing about fourteen grazing units on tribal lands zoned as communal for testing alternative grazing systems and provide support for small communal schemes in these areas; (iii) promote more efficient marketing of livestock through constructing new and improving existing trek routes, improving rail handling facilities, and constructing holding grounds for small stock; and (iv) strengthen institutions serving livestock development programs. About 1,000 individuals in tribal areas are expected to benefit from the ranch development and a much larger number, over 3,500 individuals, will benefit from the communal grazing units and the improvement of the marketing infrastructure.
The project Gaborone - Losatse Water Supply Project is now in the pipeline.

The project Gaborone - Losatse Water Supply Project is now in the pipeline. To see more information, see the project information in the World Bank project database

The dam on the Notwani River just outside Gaborone has a large catchment area which yields water much in excess of Gaborone's present requirements. After considering various schemes, the consultants have recommended the proposed project as the least-cost solution to the urgent problem at Lobatse and the longer-term improvement of the water supply system in both towns. A raw water pumping station and treatment plant would be built at Gaborone to serve both Gaborone and Lobatse. A 32-mile pipeline would be built from Gaborone to Nuane, where the water will be pumped into the existing transmission line to the Lobatse distribution system. Main extensions and reservoirs would be constructed in Gaborone and Lobatse. The project would include office and laboratory equipment and equipment for pipe laying, metering and testing, vehicles and laborers' housing. Technical assistance would be provided under the project to establish an appropriate accounting and budgeting system.
The project Education Project (02) is now in the pipeline.

The project Education Project (02) is now in the pipeline. To see more information, see the project information in the World Bank project database

The Second Education Project will expand and improve the network of junior secondary schools, increase rural vocational training and provide training for civil servants and public sector personnel. Major components include: (a) providing of classrooms, science facilities, offices and site work for about 11 community junior secondary schools, (b) constructing about 7 new community junior secondary schools, (c) assisting about 7 youth brigade centers and 9 agriculture brigades, (d) expanding the facilities at the Botswana Training Center and the Institute of Development Management, and (e) providing technical assistance for specialist services in the Project Implementation Unit. The project will help Botswana meet its future work force requirements by expanding enrollments at the junior secondary level and in institutions providing vocational, civil service and management training. The project's risk involve the adequate provision of junior secondary school teachers, particularly in mathematics and sciences, and possible difficulties in the formation and operation of the agricultural brigades.

The project would help avert the repetition, during the mid-1980's, of the current water shortages in Gaborone, Botswana's rapidly-developing capital, and help meet demand in Gaborone and the nearby meat-processing center of Lobatse until about 1988. It would also prepare for additional supply after that date. The project would: (i) raise the existing Gaborone Dam by 8 m; (ii) expand water treatment and transmission facilities; (iii) investigate the sites for two additional dams and prepare preliminary designs for the dams and associated plant; and (iv) help WUC develop a program for senior manpower development.

The project would provide consultants' services to conduct surveys, complete the engineering design and prepare the contract documents for the construction of transportation, power, water, township and medical facilities. The consultants would also estimate construction costs, prepare time schedules, assist with the evaluation of bids and give such advice as is required. They would supervise the construction of the preliminary works. These works include site clearance, temporary offices, advance housing, temporary water and power supplies and the provision of the services of project coordinating staff during the design stage. The total cost is estimated at US$2.5 million, of which $1.8 million is for design.
