Veld Products Research & Development (VPR&D), is a Botswana-based Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), established in 1981 to research and develop a wide range of veld products and to investigate suitable management systems for natural resources in order to ensure sustainable utilisation.

VPR&D's main research sites and nursery facilities are located in Gabane, a village 18 kms west of Gaborone. A Board of Directors comprised of individuals who are farmers in the Gabane community as well as senior people in Government and in other NGOs governs VPR&D.

In addition to its nursery-based research, VPR&D undertakes field activities throughout Botswana and the Southern Africa region.
These activities include community-based project activities as well work on indigenous fruit tree planting trials and agroforestry trial plots located throughout Botswana.
