Tanzania – Tabora 2

Tabora 2

About the Project

In Tabora region, rapid population growth has placed enormous pressure on natural and environmental resources. Tabora is also famous for tabacco growing, beekeeping (honey and beeswax) and timber activities. Livestock farming is also an important economic activity in the region. The climate is generally hot (20 to 32 degrees C), with relative humidity ranging from 25 to 65% and rainfall ranges from 650 to 850 mm per year. Although the Region is semi-arid, many villages have high water aquifers that are easily tapped into and provide a consistent source of water for irrigating for high value crops such as vegetables and trees.
