*Could DVS immediately improve its support for livestock commodity exports (both to the rest of Botswana and elsewhere)? If so, how? If not, why not?
*Could DVS improve the effectiveness of FMD management with currently available resources? If so, how? If not, why not?
*Are current FMD management practices in Ngamiland, including outbreak response, compatible with implementation of CBT and the need for minimal disruption of trade? If not, what would need to change?
