Direction du Développement de la Coopération (Suisse)

Titre : Strengthening Livestock Sector in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) Counties Kenya

Pays/Région : Kenya

Durée : 01.04.2022 - 31.03.2026

Résumé
60% of the population in northern Kenya depends on livestock production in an environment of recurrent droughts and natural resource-based conflicts. The programme will contribute to poverty reduction, improved resilience to shocks and enhanced socio-economic inclusion of pastoralist and agro-pastoralist men and women by supporting climate-smart livestock production, improving rangelands management and promoting peaceful coexistence of communities.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : Switzerland supports pastoralist communities in this region since 2012, through different interventions in the water, rangelands management and livestock sector to enhance their resilience to droughts and improve their livelihoods. Building on the successes and lessons learnt from the first phase of this programme (2018-2022), the second four-year phase is planned to advance on the gains made. The programme contributes to the stability of Horn of Africa through resilience building, which is also the interest of Switzerland.
* Objectifs  : To contribute to the resilience of pastoralist and agro-pastoralist communities in the Frontier Counties Development Council (FCDC) region to droughts, livestock disease outbreaks and natural resource conflicts.
* Groupes cibles  : An estimated 100’000 pastoralist and agro-pastoralist households will benefit directly from the programme interventions and further 3 million people indirectly. 1500 technical staff from county departments will benefit from capacity support in institutional management of livestock and rangelands management and peace building.

Budget de la Suisse  : CHF 4’462’000
