- New and festering conflicts contribute to the shackles of poverty, as widespread violence across several Eastern African countries hampers prospects for economic growth and diversification. Inter- and intrastate violence are made more lethally efficient by the millions of small arms and light weapons in circulation on the continent. Armed conflicts have forced millions to leave their homes, and without shelter, food, and water for significant periods of time, these people become increasingly vulnerable. Compounding this vicious circle of deprivation, and perhaps in part because of it, is the growing threat from terrorist organizations preying upon not only Western targets in the Eastern Africa region, but also upon innocent local populations. In short, extreme poverty, poor public health opportunities, internal political strife, interstate wars, trafficking in small arms, and terrorism fuel a continuous cycle that prevents large swathes of the continent from participating in much of the positive economic momentum that other parts of the world are either beginning to experience or have been enjoying for decades. Inarguably, to begin ameliorating the gruesome challenges, a wide variety of novel and increased human, technical, and financial capacity-building measures will have to be put into place. The most cursory survey of priority issues facing governments of Eastern Africa presented in this report reveals clear opportunities to better leverage and ultimately help realize security and development objectives in the subregion and around the world. With a deeper understanding of regional priorities and an improved focus on security assistance, we find that mutual benefit can equally accrue to security donors and their recipient partners. The goal of this report was to initiate more innovative thinking regarding how the panoply of relevant constituencies can begin to promote more-sustainable engagement by sketching a concept in which the security and development communities, North and South, donors and recipients, can operationalize joint and sustainable activities on the ground.
