- Executive Summary
Asylum seekers and refugees in Kayole, Eastleigh and Kitengela have made great strides integrating into the social and economic life of Nairobi. The livelihoods baseline illustrates that the socio-economic profile of the urban asylum seeker or refugee is not that of desperation and dependence.

“We are illiterate and we realize that information is a powerful tool. Though we are still illiterate now, I can say we are far better than before because of the radio programme.” (Male livestock trader, Lafaley) “We really benefited as a community (from these phones). You cannot imagine how such a small thing has helped us. You know, we are marginalized as we do not have a chief or a councillor. SC is now our saviour.” (Women’s group, Meygag)
This report presents the findings of an infoasaid learning review conducted between 09 and 14 July 2012, which sought to examine the implementation and results of a 6-month infoasaid/World Vision Kenya (WVK) pilot accountability/communication project implemented in Taita Taveta County, Coast Province, Kenya from February - July 2012.

We find that international grain prices have become more volatile in recent years (2007–2010) but no evidence that food price volatility has increased in the region.
