The changing funding landscape in the Eastern Africa region
The funding landscape in Eastern African region is changing rapidly. Indeed, it is the fastest growing region in recent years in Africa, according to the African Development Bank. Given the weak economic situation of the region, there has always been a strong rationale for aid and humanitarian programmes. Many grants from bilateral, and multilateral agencies as well as foundations are reaching the region. Traditionally, they focus on poverty alleviation, agriculture, and health and to some extent on social development, governance, and democracy.
