This paper discusses population issues of refugee settlements in Tanzania, including the rights and duties of refugees, the problems of integration at various levels, and the plights commonly experienced during refugees crises. The paper also looks at the effects of rapid population growth on the settlements resource base, the environment, and the community as a whole. Finally, it draws recommendations on how the rapid
growth rate can be decelerated.
