CPA UK & Botswana
CPA UK has a very productive relationship with the Parliament of Botswana. Between 2010 and 2013, under the previous Speaker, Margaret Nasha MP, CPA UK sent UK MPs and Clerks to participate in a number of seminars organised by the Parliament of Botswana. Since 2013, CPA UK has continued to engage with the Parliament at a bilateral and multilateral level, most recently sending a UK delegation in 2020 for a programme looking at parliamentary oversight, economic diversification, women's representation and wildlife conservation.
