Help us raise awareness on the effects of hunger and malnutrition in Tanzania by sharing these ten facts.

1) With a population of 50 million, Tanzania is a low-income food-deficit country.

2) Tanzania ranks 151 out of 188 countries in the Human Development Index (2015).

3) Tanzania’s economy has grown strongly in recent years, driven mainly by telecommunications, financial services, transport and construction. Despite this progress, nearly 3 Tanzanians out of 10 live in poverty, and 1 in 3 is illiterate.

HIGHLIGHTS

While efforts continue to ensure sufficient water supply to support Mtendeli and Karago camps, it is anticipated that the potential water supply can support 50,000 refugees between the two camps. Any increase in refugee population beyond 50,000 combined in Mtendeli and Karago will be guided by expert opinion on underground potential. Meanwhile the district authorities are negotiating with the local farmers to retrieve the land in Mtendeli camp under agricultural use by the local community.

25 Feb 2016 description

Highlights

During the reporting period an average of 138 Burundian refugees arrived per day. This represents a significant decrease from the past weeks. Interviews held with new arrivals indicate that there has been an increase in military patrols in the border areas inside Burundi and this has resulted in a decrease in the number of arrivals.

Opening of Karago Camp

11 Feb 2016 description

Highlights

The pattern of new arrivals during the reporting period was characterized by mainly male refugees arriving at the camps, which could be a result of potential fear among young males to remain in Burundi and risk intimidation and persecution. The change in pattern of arrivals will be monitored during the next few weeks by interviewing arrivals to better understand the causes.
