About Us

Horizon East Africa is a research project exploring the trends set to shape the future in the region.

We aim to contribute to the conversation about East Africa’s future. We want to help governments, donors, firms and citizens better mitigate risks and more firmly grasp the opportunities to come.

We synthesise global, regional and country-level data and research. We then complement this with our own targeted intelligence-gathering from strong networks in East Africa.

Our first report (compiled in 2019) looks at region-level trends across East Africa’s fast-changing financial, environmental, technological, social and political landscape. Future reports will dive deeper into individual countries. Our next planned report will look at Kenya.

Horizon reports aim to trigger debate and discussion. We welcome conversations with others and collaboration on future projects. Please connect with us @Horizon_EA to continue the conversation.
