Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document With the rise of the town of Morogoro as an important administrative and business center, the Tanzanian government has sought to accommodate growing demands for the construction of residential and commercial buildings by expropriating land from native Luguru farmers. This study discusses some of the socio-economic and environmental outcomes of this policy. The main economic impact was the loss of income caused by dislocation from productive arable land without fair and timely compensation. Environmental consequences include the expansion of informal settlements and farming into fragile, previously protected mountain areas.
