82. Assessment of Linkages Between Population Dynamics and Environmental Change in Tanzania
  Tuesday, January 10, 2006  by Admin
  This paper discusses the linkages between population growth and environmental degradation in Tanzania. Tanzania's major environmental problems, demographic characteristics, and the linkages between environmental change and rapid population growth both at national and regional levels are discussed. These discussions are intended to provide an empirical base for analysing the impact of changing environment on the people’s lifestyle and their demographic behaviours including the reproductive ones. A conclusion is made that environmental change is as an important factor to demographic and economic factors as it is population growth to economic development and environmental conservation.

superb wildlife found in the country. It is only recently that the need to diversify away from
wildlife tourism and focus on coastal and cultural tourism has been recognized.
