The VP said it is important to continue encouraging scholars in the country to carry out research before coming up with publications focusing on various development issues.

He said there are a number of issues to write about, especially on science and socio-economic development, including challenges that face Tanzanians from the grassroots level.

Good quality natural environments provide basic needs, in terms of clean air and water, fertile land for food production, and energy and material inputs for production.
