In order to carry out successful socioeconomic programmes, NOREB is advocating for increased budgetary allocation from member counties. In addition to support from development partners through Public Private Partnerships financing frameworks, the mobilized resources will enable the economic bloc to undertake joint investment ventures through resource pooling. The creation of a joint fund and a regional Development Bank is a venture that NOREB will seek to explore.
NOREB will promote county contribution in organizing farmers, traders and economic interest groups in cooperative societies. The bloc will further initiate the forming of regional umbrella cooperatives that will be the focus of driving the regional productivity and marketing agenda.
