Natural resources in Tanzania constitute a wealth asset. During the past decade, mining, fisheries and tourism have been the most dynamic sectors in the economy. Although Tourism development is a success story of growth in macro-economic terms, local development spin-off effects could be explored more fully. Most currently known mineral deposits are being already tapped while at the same time new mineral stocks are being discovered. Fisheries is still a growing sector but there are signs of decline in catch-per-unit in Lake Victoria and catch of fish and prawn in the coastal zones, which points towards a deceleration of growth in these sectors in the medium and long term. The National Strategy for Growth and Poverty Reduction (NSGPR 2005) subscribes to the principles of sustainable and equitable development. This summary paper as well as the three detailed background papers defend the hypothesis that, due to policy failure, Tanzania's natural resource endowments are not harnessed in an optimal way to both economic growth and poverty reduction.
