climate-aware, trade-driven, food security-enhancing
agro-processing for East Africa

In the EAC region, fish resources, which support the livelihood of millions of people, have been largely exploited due to overfishing and illegal fishing activities of other countries, especially in the deep-waters off the coast of Kenya and Tanzania. This note explores how the region can benefit from the multilateral trade negotiations at the WTO to further strengthen the disciplines on fisheries subsidies and to manage its marine resources more efficiently.
This paper provides a brief overview of the negative impact of trade-distorting domestic support on the agriculture sector in the East African Community (EAC), and how multilateral trade negotiations could be leveraged to reduce the global level of such support so as to boost the agricultural development plans in East Africa.
Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and regional integration arrangements are increasingly covering trade and investment. It is likely that such issues would be explored for negotiations within WTO. This brief note takes a historical review of negotiations to regulate foreign investment at the multilateral level. The overarching objective is to provide the context for any future negotiations in this regard at the WTO.
This note will focus on the state of technology development & transfer in the UNFCCC framework, before and after the Paris agreement and COP22, then looking at the challenges of current technology mechanisms in place as well as presenting possible alternatives and opportunities. This paper will be concluded with some recommendations to climate negotiators going to COP23, especially developing countries and LDCs negotiators (including EAC representatives).
Comment le développement de l'agro-industrie au Burundi peut-il devenir plus conscient du climat, profiter du commerce et assurer la sécurité alimentaire?
Until the early 1980’s, the clothing and shoes industrial sector in East Africa was thriving, with well-established value chains. Over the years, the sector has collapsed following the emergence of informal dealers of imported second-hand clothes and shoes, which EAC Heads of States recently decided to ban in an effort to revive the sector. This study reviews the state of play of used clothing and shoes imports in East Africa, and proposes practical approaches to implementing the ban.
