The East Africa Research Fund (EARF) is a funding facility managed by PricewaterhouseCoopers Kenya (PwC) on behalf of DFID’s East Africa Research Hub (EARH). Through this facility, DFID’s country offices in eastern Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan) are supported to use evidence in order to drive development impact and value for money, linking with UK’s wider science and research agenda in the region.

Procurement and programme management aspects of the projects are handled by the Fund Manager represented by PwC.

The Hub has four main objectives:
  • Supporting DFID country offices in the region to use and generate high-quality relevant research and evidence and;
  • Supporting regional relevant research which addresses key challenges for countries in the region or are cross-border issues.
  • Strengthening the research capacity and systems in East Africa
  • Promoting cross-UK government work on science, technology and innovation.
