Tanzania has been spared the internal strife that has blighted many African states. The country is home to two renowned tourism destinations - Africa's highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, and wildlife-rich national parks such as the Serengeti - but has become a target for poachers. Conservationists have warned that the entire elephant population could die out by the end of the decade if they continue to be killed for their ivory at the current rate (BBC, 2018).Tanzania has sustained relatively high economic growth over the last decade but, while the poverty rate in the country has declined, the absolute number of poor citizens has not because of the high population growth rate. Government efforts to expand access to social services like education, health, and water have been undermined by their declining quality as the population rises faster than the supply of the services (World Bank, 2019).
