  • In relation to Recommendations 1, 4, 11 12, 21, 23, 29, 30, 31, 32, 39 and 40, Botswana has been re-rated largely compliant on these 12 Recommendations.
  • Reviewers have considered the progress on recommendations 6, 7, 9, 10, 13, 15, 16, 24, 25, 26, 28, 33 and 35 and re-rated Botswana as partially compliant on these 13 Recommendations.
