The Regional Agricultural Trade Network (RATIN) was developed to help reduce regional food insecurity by strengthening the ability of markets to provide access to affordable food to poor households and to improve food availability through the provision of adequate incentives to producers. To achieve this goal RATIN provides regional trade analyses for maize, beans and rice by using information from a variety of sources, including ministries of agriculture and other government offices, international agencies, etc. The RATIN website provides full-text access to wholesale prices in East Africa, bulletins, production data, etc.
