A Line in the Sand

EIA’s briefing document, “A Line in the Sand”, outlines the responsibility that Europe has in this cattle fencing issue by illustrating the link between EU beef subsidies and the Botswana cattle export industry. The briefing voices the concerns of local stakeholders, including those of members of the Xai Xai Community, the community which will be most affected if the proposed development goes ahead. Recommendations to EU governments, MEPs, and the Government of Botswana are provided.
