Borderlands Report published by World Bank in collaboration with Elizabeth Stites

April 2020

In March 2020 the World Bank published a report on resilience and economic opportunity in the Borderlands of the Horn of Africa where pastoralism and trade are the dominant livelihoods. Elizabeth Stites collaborated on this report to understand the economic potential of the region despite extreme poverty, food insecurity, and vulnerability. The report argues that even in the borderlands, which are at the periphery of state control, people are connected to circuits of global capital and exchange. To read the report, click here.
