World Bank Funds Project to Promote Tanzania

Samia Suluhu Hassan, vice president, Tanzania, has launched a World Bank-funded project, the Resilient Natural Resource Management for Tourism and Growth (REGROW), aimed at promoting destinations along the country’s southern tourist circuit.

REGROW aims to assist with improvements to tourist-linked infrastructure. Hassan described REGROW as a way to unleash the area’s tourism potential, a region that’s already appealing for tourists, but suffers due to difficult access as it lacks adequate roads and airstrips.

Attractions include Kalenga, Isimila, a Stone Age site located within the Iringa region, and the Songwe Region’s Mbozi meteorite crater. Hamis Kigwangalla, minister, natural resources and tourism, Tanzania, stated that the project’s launch would improve economic opportunities for communities living around Tanzania’s southern national parks.
