RATIN East Africa Crossborder Trade Data
The Regional Agricultural Trade Intelligence Network (RATIN) was developed to help reduce regional food insecurity by strengthening the ability of markets to provide poor households with access to affordable food and to improve food availability through providing adequate incentives to producers. RATIN started as a collaborative effort comprising three USAID projects: Famine Early Warning System Network Project (FEWS NET), the Regional Agricultural Trade Enhancement Support Program (RATES), and Eastern Africa Grain Council (EAGC). The major task of RATIN is to supply traders with improved early marketing and trade information that would lead to more efficient and competitive transactions in food trade between surplus and deficit regions in East Africa.
The RATIN East Africa Crossborder Trade Data covers cross border trade between Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda for several crops.
Weekly crossborder trade data is available here.
Data is currently available from the RATIN website on a weekly basis for free.
