Abstract

Plans for Tanzania’s controversial 2,100MW mega-dam would make it the joint second largest hydropower facility in Africa, with negative environmental and socio-economic impacts expected alongside strains on state finances. How the new government approaches the dam, writes Barnaby Dye, will inform how political power is concentrated in the Hassan administration, particularly whether it is more or less centralised than under ex-President Magufuli.
