Title:Water resources conservation in the semi-arid parts of tanzania
Author:Msangi, J.P.
Periodical:Journal of Eastern African Research and Development
Geographic term:Tanzania
Abstract:In order to chart out a successful strategy for the conservation of water resources, water availability, nature of occurrence, development and management techniques as well as utilization alternatives must be considered. As such, the author looks at the extent of semiaridity in Tanzania, and examines the pertaining surface and subsurface (groundwater) conditions and the inhabitants of the area in question. Conservation methods which are viable in the semiarid areas of Tanzania include soil moisture conservation, increasing the infiltration rate, the construction of storage reservoirs, groundwater recharge, dew harvesting, pollution control, water recycling, purification, defluoridation and desalination.
