Cost of Conflicts in the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) Region

The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) aims to promote social and economic development in the region. Conflicts, particularly in the area of the Great Lakes, are adversely affecting the regional integration agenda, although their actual costs have yet to be assessed. This grant will support the development of a project proposal for calculating the cost of conflicts in the Great Lakes and Horn of Africa. The methodology and tools developed will be used to enhance COMESA's capacity to prevent, resolve and mitigate conflict in the region.
