What is the Human Resource Development Approach?

The approach is a divergence from the Manpower Planning Approach which is used to be undertaken by the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning until 1987. Sector Driven National Human Resource Development Planning is a collaborative integrated systems approach to human resource development planning that links together national policies and strategies, education and skills development, the labour market and the economy and which cuts across separate jurisdictions to ensure a pan-Botswana National Human Resource Development Plan. Human resource development planning approach will ensure Botswana’s successful transitions from a resource driven to an efficiency driven economy and to lay the foundation for a subsequent transition to a knowledge based, innovation economy.
