Title:The shrinking forests and the problem of deforestation in tanzania
Author:Misana, S.B.
Periodical:Journal of Eastern African Research and Development
Geographic term:Tanzania
Abstract:Forests represent one of the major natural resources of Tanzania. They are a major source of fuelwood and building poles, and they perform several ecological functions. Still, many forests are in danger of being depleted due to overexploitation. The rapid rate at which deforestation is taking place poses grave concern for the future wellbeing of the people. This paper examines the status and utilization of forests, the extent of deforestation and management and conservation efforts, and it suggests possible remedies to minimize the current problem of deforestation.
