    The prosperity of Botswana largely depends on its natural resources. As to the agricultural sector, poor utilization of land resources has until now resulted in low crop yields, poor livestock offtake rates, low rural household incomes and widespread degradation of soils and rangeland. Acknowledging these problems, the Botswana Government has recently adopted a series of policies to ensure that land resources are used in a sustainable manner.

    The Crop Yield Simulation and Land Assessment Model for Botswana (CYSLAMB) has been developed to serve thd needs of land evaluation in a semi-arid environment. By modelling the interaction of environmental variables, physiological responses, inputs and management, CYSLAMB predicts the yield of a particular crop production system on a specified land unit. The use of actual rainfall data for individual years enables evaluation of interannual yield variability and quantification of risk in the specification of land suitability.

    Tribal land management constitutes the largest of the three main tenure types that prevail in Botswana (tribal, State, and freehold). The land inventory is a means to support land administration, land development, land use planning, land transactions and natural resources management in Botswana. The land inventory is currently web based and GIS-enabled through the Tribal Land Information Management Systems and the State Land Information Management System. These systems now play a key role in land-related policy and management decisions.
