Role of the Kenyan parliament in promoting the East African integration: 1963 to 2010

This study sets out to examine the role of the Kenyan Parliament in promoting the East African integration since independence up to 2010. The study was guided by the intergovernmentalism theory of integration. In realizing the study’s objectives, the study relied on secondary data which was drawn from library research of documentary sources of information. These were readily available in Nairobi and Arusha where the Kenyan parliament and EAC headquarters are domiciled respectively.

The standard credit reference bureau and the performance of multinational banks operating in the East African Community

The management of credit risks has become an important concern to policy makers, as they seek drive good performance of multinational banks. This research project examines the need for a standard Credit Reference Bureau to overcome the challenges of the EAC states integration and ensure a progressive performance of the multinational banks.

OLR and SST characteristics over Africa during years of deficient and surplus rainfall in East Africa

Accurate rainfall forecasts would greatly improve the quality and quantity of agricultural products and other rain dependent activities, while allowing for the amelioration and integration of the catastrophic socio-economic impacts of extreme rainfall events. Such forecasts are as yet unavailable and although numerical models could Improve contemporary forecasts, their potentials remain unexploited in this region.

Rerouting the postcolonial from an east African perspective

Some postcolonial critics have recently called for a rerouting of the postcolonial study of literature due to what they perceive as increased globalization that affects the identity and worldview of the subject. Various critics have also called for attention to variants of Cosmopolitanism. Such critical terms invite the global into the local, leading to different readings of postcolonial texts in negotiating the third space of multiculturalism.

The Human Dimensions Studies on the East African Lake Regions: A Review

Several studies have been carried out under the auspices of the IDEAL (International Decade for East African Lakes) programme on the physical and biological factors affecting the East African lakes. These include aspects such as geological and sedimentary processes, climate dynamics and variability, limnology, food webs and fisheries, and paleoenvironment. However, the human dimensions research has not been part of the overall framework of the IDEAL programme. This paper makes a comparison of the human dimensions and natural science research on the East African Lakes.

The response of manufacturing firms in Kenya to the introduction of East African community (EAC)customs union

Organisations, in order to function and survrve, have to interact constantly with the outside world, the environment. The operations of any organisation can be described in terms of its "input-transformation-output" process. They get their inputs from the environment and after performing a transformation process with those inputs, produce outputs which they then discharge back to the environment. The environment is constantly changing.

Factors that influence implementation of East African common market within Kenya

As international trade and investment levels continue to nse, the level of economic integration between various groups of nations is also deepening. There has been a worldwide wave of regional integration agreements. Most of these regional integration agreements were set up in Africa but they ended up dormant or failed. The importance of trade within the common market is paramount because it is the first step towards economic and political integration. Trading blocs have become quite ubiquitous, with approximately 200 of them presently operating in the world trading system.

Factors limiting the integration of capital markets in East African countries

Capital Markets in the East African Community (EAC) are underdeveloped with limited activity. This has constrained their ability to contribute maximally to the mobilization and allocation of long-term financial resources. The EAC has consequently recognized the limitations of a country-focused approach to developing capital markets and has placed substantial emphasis on the pursuit of a regional approach.

The Sensitivity of East African rift lakes to climate fluctuations

Sequences of paleo-shorelines and the deposits of rift lakes are used to reconstruct past climate changes in East Africa. These recorders of hydrological changes in the Rift Valley indicate extreme lake-level variations on the order of tens to hundreds of meters during the last 20,000 years. Lake-balance and climate modeling results, on the other hand, suggest relatively moderate changes in the precipitation-evaporation balance during that time interval. What could cause such a disparity? We investigated the physical characteristics and hydrology of lake basins to resolve this difference.

Mixed-host Aggregations And Helminth Parasite Sharing In An East African Wildlife-livestock System.

Parasitic infections transmitted between livestock and wildlife pose a significant risk to wildlife conservation efforts and constrain livestock productivity in tropical regions of the world. Gastrointestinal helminths are among the most ubiquitous parasites, and many parasites within this taxon can readily infect a wide range of host species. Factors shaping bidirectional transmission of parasites in wildlife-livestock systems are understudied. In this study, we investigate the prevalence and diversity of helminth infections in an East African community of wild and domestic ungulates.
