Eastern Arc Mountains,    (Mountains: Eastern Arc Mountains) - 3970005

Eastern Arc Mountains

Description: Ruvu River flowing from Uluguru Mountains. The forests of the Uluguru Mountains provide water catchment areas for the streams and rivers which join to form the Ruvu river, which provides the water supply to the largest city in Tanzania - Dar es Salaam. More than 3 million people and the major industries in Tanzania rely on this water supply for their continued survival. The loss of the Uluguru forests and any reduction in water supply potential of the mountains could therefore have a major negative impact on the human well-being and the industrial capacity of Tanzania.
