Shared Prosperity

The EAC is home to a wide range of cultures, communities, tribes and religions. Within each of these groupings are sub-divisions based on language, wealth, lineage etc. At a regional level these divisions allow for easy fracture when influenced by politics that seek office through popularity within these areas. In turn these political alliances via tribe or community result in allocation and dissemination of wealth within the area of origin of the political elite. The outcomes of these structures ensure that infrastructural development, urban growth and economic zones develop in these areas leaving other areas infrastructurally underdeveloped and economically disparate

Programme Objectives:

  • Finding novel approaches to data and policy analytics by moving the decision-making processes for policy/program design and development and implementation from simple reliance on evidence to an intelligence-based approach that is predicated on insight (ex-post analysis) and foresight (ex-ante analysis). 

  • To create and develop tools that allow dynamic query, visualization and more intuitive decision dashboard applications; updating those that we have developed in information and scope.

  • Our current area of focus for this programme currently are agriculture and health where databases and atlases are created to understand the inequality around health, education and food at national and sub-national level; this will be replicated across the four countries we work in.
