  Thursday, March 22, 2007  by Admin
  Agriculture is a key element of the Tanzanian economy and is highly dependent on water resources.

This demand, combined with several years of below-average rainfall, contributed to water scarcity and conflict. Better management of the two largest basins–Rufiji and Pangani–was critical, as well as correcting irrigation inefficiencies since 80 percent of irrigation water was used by small holder farmers applying traditional techniques.
