Abstract

This thesis examines the effects of environmental conservation policies in colonial and post colonial Tanzania from 1922 to 2000 in Morogoro and Shinyanga regions. Little is known and has been written about environmental conservation policies in different historical epochs. The stated objectives have been accomplished by analyzing the following themes: firstly the pre-colonial environmental conservation in Morogoro and Shinyanga regions; secondly, the strengths and weaknesses of environmental conservation policies among the Luguru and Sukuma of Tanzania during the colonial period; thirdly, the impact of environmental conservation policies on cultural aspect on both regions and lastly, the post-colonial environmental conservation policies.The thesis has mainly centred on environmental conservation strategies and practices. Economic and political changes have been broadly treated as complex processes of transformation and adjustment of environmental conservation strategies and policies. To explain this transformation, the Political Ecology, Ecological Revolution, and Historical Ecology theories have been used. The thesis used qualitative method. Data analysis was guided by the stated research questions. Each question was expanded to form a major chapter. The researcher presented the findings by using primary and secondary information. It was concluded in the thesis that the European capital penetration alone did not automatically simplify the imposition of colonial environmental conservation policies there were other internal factors that acted upon. It is recommended that there is a need to review and research the narratives and organizational models for promoting more significant local involvement in environmental management.
