Tanzania is largely dependent on agriculture for employment, accounting for about half of the employed workforce. This strong dependence on agriculture, makes Tanzania's economy highly vulnerable to weather shocks and fluctuating commodity prices. The Country's natural resources are hydropower, tin, phosphates, iron ore, coal, diamonds, gemstones, gold, natural gas, and nickel. Industry and construction are growing components of the Tanzanian economy (second to agricultural), contributing 20-25% of GDP
