UNDP Tanzania Environmental Sustainability, Climate Change and Resilience Pillar

Tanzania’s economic growth depends heavily on its environmental and natural resources with more than 80 per cent of the population remaining dependent on them for income generation.

Thecountry is equally rich in resources, including its diverse wildlife, natural forests, pristine beaches, mountains, rivers, lakes, minerals and gas and boasting tropical climate and cultural wealth that positions it as a popular tourist destination. Most of these attractions are found in protected areas and they include its national parks, game reserves, wildlife controlled areas, marine parks, as well as in various historical and cultural sites.


The country’s natural resources have contributed immensely to its planned economic development and hence remain the backbone of its planned growth in industrialisation and ambitions towards the Middle-Income Status
