Another problem Tunisia is currently facing is that the toxic and hazardous waste is disposing and poses health risks; water pollution from the raw sewage; limited natural fresh water resourcers; deforestation any many more.

Solutions

I believe that the solution for the first problem is to have all the tourist that were traveling a that time and find out who was the one how was the main responsible for the problem. The other solution for the problem would be that Tunisia should have a better way to disposal all their items and view the chances of recycling or evern find another way to clean out the place more.

QuestionsMy questions for Tunisia is how does the government control the people? How do they show reposiblity after all the trouble they are facing at the moment?My other question would be how is life in Tunisia?

AnswersMy answer may not be right but i asume that the government shows the same quality as the Unites States does. I belive that the president of Tunisia plays the same role as Obama.My other answer would be i guess i would have to visit Tunisia myself. I request we have a fieldtrip to Tunisia.
