USAID Economics of Natural Capital in East Africa





Location

Nairobi, Kenya


Partners



Through USAID’s Economics of Natural Capital in East Africa contract, EI and partners aim to strengthen the East African Community’s regional policy dialogue by improving the evidence base on transboundary natural resource management and biodiversity conservation. Working alongside the East African Community Secretariat and Member States, conservation organizations, communities in the region, the private sector, and USAID, this Nairobi-based two and a half-year project (2019-2022) is working to:

  1. Increase access to analysis and evidence-based materials on the current and potential value of natural capital.
  2. Increase awareness by decision-makers and the public on the current and potential value of natural capital in the context of unforeseen (e.g., COVID-19 pandemic) and anticipated (e.g., changing climate) external stressors in East Africa.
  3. Increase cross-sectoral, action-oriented dialogue on conservation, resilience strengthening, and sustainable development.
  4. Identify innovative ideas and actions for improving sustainable economic growth in the region based on a natural capital approach.
  5. Inform decision making for the management of natural capital across the region.
