Researching and analysing the Kenya livestock value chain
The livestock sector in Kenya is vital to people’s livelihoods. Many households depend on it for income through the sale of animal products, employment, as a source of food, and it also contributes significantly to the national gross domestic product. However, the production and productivity of the sector are below potential due to process and technological under-developments, weak market infrastructure and organization, inadequate resourcing and climate change shocks. To help improve the productivity and resilience of the sector, this project is seeking to identify opportunities to strengthen value chains in the sector through investments, trade and collaborations with the United States agricultural sector.
