The Diamonds for Development Fund is being established by De Beers Group in consultation with the Government of Botswana for Batswana. It will support the country’s emerging knowledge-based economy and accelerate its long-term economic diversification.
To ensure De Beers can deliver a transformative positive impact in partnership with the people of Botswana, it will make an initial investment of BWP 1 billion, and up to BWP 10 billion in total, in the Fund.
The Diamonds for Development Fund will adopt globally recognised methodologies to identify sectors beyond the diamond value chain that support the Government’s Vision 2036, National Development Plan and delivery of the Reset Agenda.
