Regional Integration Equity Programme
The Regional Integration Equity Programme is a new programme which follows the Rich and Poor Project (RAPP) (2004-2008). Its orientation is to conduct research; assemble and publish data; and facilitate dialogue on the subject with a view to deepening understanding and exploring solutions.
Through the RAPP project SID has implemented succesful work on poverty, inequality and growth at the national level in Kenya. This work led to a successful process that published key reports that influenced debate and policy on inequality in Kenya. From 2008 onwards, SID has expanded its work on equity regionally within the context of regional integration.
Through the three-year 'Regional Integration Equity Programme' SID aims to monitor and deepen understanding of the dynamics of integration in East Africa from an equity perspective. As part of the programme, SID is undertaking four studies on the EAC integration process in the fields of education, employment and labour, trade and media.

'Pulling Apart: Facts and Figures of Inequality in Kenya' captures the facts and presents the portrait of the unequal development of a nation.
