In Zanzibar fresh water for drinking and other purposes come from rain that replenishes the island’s groundwater reservoir and in many cases freshwater is a scarce resource. On top of this, the excessive pumping in groundwater for the tourist industry increases the risk of salt water seeping into the freshwater magazine from the sea, thereby destroying the freshwater resource.

Sustainable Tourism – promoting environmental public health Tourism - a major generator of solid waste (05:50)
Only Sharing Permitted

In this presentation we focus’ on how tourism is a major generator of solid waste in Zanzibar. Tourist from OECD countries bring with them the lifestyle that replicate the waste generation from their native country, not only the volume of waste follows the tourist but also the composition. In Zanzibar, the composition is 80 percent organic material, but in OECD countries, the composition is only 25 to 30 percent organic material. This leaves Zanzibar’s traditional organic based waste handling system unable to handle the tourism waste.
