Tanzania uses hydro-power to hel operate lots of electricity throughout the country. Due to the lack of rainfall and lack of reservoirs, the Tanzania technology and electricity is insufficient and causing people to suffer.
Tanzania also suffers from lots of illegal and unsustainable deforestation.
Due to the extreme need of other countries in the past, nearly 1/3 of the population is tourists. This may not seem like a problem, but because the government is providing resources for the non-native visitors in the country, it causes a lack of resources for natives.

Elements of Culture
Tanzania doesn't have too many manufacturing companies, but it produces several resources such as steel and petroleum.
Due to the slave trade from 1500 to 1900, many people from Africa were migrated to different countries, including Tanzania, which lost about 20% of their population. Despite people leaving Tanzania, a majority of people fled to Tanzania during the slave trade; this country was almost considered a safe zone(similar to Switzerland in WWII.

In Tanzania is divided into 31 different regions, or as they call it, "mikoa". Some of the regions in Tanzania include Dar es Salaam, Mwanza, Mbeya, Tabora, and Kilimanjaro regions.

Many, many years ago, Tanzania was called a different name. Back in the 16Th and 17Th century, what we know as Tanzania was Zanzibar. Zanzibar was a significant place, as it was the major transit point during the slave trade, which had begun in Africa in about the 15 and 1600s, when Zanzibar first rose. Zanzibar also was world famous for their trade in spices, and it had produced 90% of the entire world's clove(spice).
Tanganyika was the new name for Tanzania after Zanzibar during the 18th century. This was the time during which the British began to explore Tanzania, and eventually took over after WWI. This led to the revolution that gained Tanzania its independence. When the country finally became independent on 12/10/1963, they combined the names of their country's history to make the name Tanzania.
After Tanzania had gained independence in 1963, the president, Julius Nyerere socialistic economy. He encouraged people from first world countries to help develop the country and help build a steady economy. He believed that the sources from different countries would provide knowledge in order to build a strong and indigenous country. When the socialism mission had come to a fail after several horrific years, chaos had ensued. Nyerere finally admitted failure and resigned as president 1985. He later hand-picked a new president, Ali Hassan Mwinyi who helped resolve the problems that occurred in Tanzania.
