20 imagesTanzania is a country in transition. As the UN notes, East Africa’s second biggest economy is growing fast with a population that is estimated to double by 2050. With up to 1 million more people each year, the demand on the country’s environment, healthcare, housing and education system, are ever increasing. With aspirations to be a middle income country Tanzania’s government recently published their National Five Year Development Plan 2016/17-2020/21, setting out the country’s new targets, required to attain objectives set out in The Tanzania Development Goals 2025. Working with Raleigh International I traveled around Tanzania documenting development work which addressed two of these increasing national issues; the population’s dependency on its forest, and the lack of access to safe water and sanitation.
