Policy implications on environment: the case of villagisation in Tanzania
The Nordic Africa Institute.
1997 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Traditional methods of land management through rapid change in the name of "development" has led to land degradation. Resettlement during villagisation increased the human and livestock population. The concentration of this increased population into nucleated settlements and the rigid so-called "land-use plans" meant a complete disruption of traditional land management system. This study points towards the need for educational and awareness programmes to go along with policies which have environmental implications.
