LIFT is funded by TradeMark East Africa (TMEA), which is a multi-donor initiative funded by a range of development agencies to promote regional trade and economic integration in East Africa by working closely with East African Community (EAC) institutions, national governments, and business and civil society organizations.

The Government of the UK, which is a partner of TMEA, seeks to support East African integration by unlocking economic potential through:

  • a reduction in transport and related costs along the key corridors in East Africa;
  • supporting EAC institutions to develop a comprehensive framework for regional integration; and,
  • supporting partner states substantially.
