Welcome to the RegionSTAT EAC website

RegionSTAT is a statistical framework and applied information system for analysis and policy-making at the regional level which was designed in order to organize, integrate and disseminate statistical data and metadata on food and agriculture coming from different sources.

RegionSTAT gathers and harmonizes scattered institutional statistical data so that information is aggregated to the regional level and becomes compatible  with data at the international level. The main objectives are to facilitate decision-maker's access to information and to bind data sources that are currently spread throughout the different institutions.

The RegionSTAT approach is based on the application of data and metadata standards of FAOSTAT and GAUL (Global Administrative Unit Layers). Many countries have shown interest and are adopting it into their national statistical system. Furthermore, RegionSTAT is accompanied by a capacity-building strategy at country level to make the system sustainable in the long-term. RegionSTATis networking with FAOSTAT and other sister information systems like FENIX.


In line with the EAC Secretariat calendar of activities for the period July to December 2014, the meeting of the Sectoral Committee on Statistics was scheduled for 22nd – 24th October, 2014 in Nairobi – Kenya. As part of the programme, the EAC RegionSTAT was launched by the Honorable Minister Minister for Agriculture Livestock and Fisheries of the Republic of Kenya.
