Titre : Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Accelerated Growth (Kenya)

Pays : Kenya

Zone géographique : Isiolo and Marsabit Counties

Durée : August 2013 – August 2017

Descriptif
Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Accelerated Growth is a five-year activity that increases economic growth in rural communities in Kenya by building a more inclusive and competitive livestock value chain. It encourages growth by improving market access and increasing the availability and affordability of inputs and services. It strengthens the links between pastoralists and the buyers of livestock and livestock products. It helps herders increase livestock productivity through improved breeds, and expands the adoption of existing and new livestock services.
The activity supports both men and women in the pursuit of livestock-related economic opportunities by encouraging investments in targeted community-managed infrastructure and by helping to eliminate market constraints. The introduction of private-sector driven innovations reduces risk, and encourages pastoralist communities to adopt new behaviors and new ways of doing business, which will increase their resiliency and ability to absorb the impact of future shocks and stresses.

Activités
Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Accelerated Growth improves the enabling environment by working with pastoral communities to advocate for improved national policies and additional changes in legislation that will expand their access to critical services and markets. The activity identifies and engages with change agents to create or expand end-market opportunities and catalyze commercial investments in the meat, dairy, and hides and skins value chains. The activity increases livestock productivity by identifying and supporting the development of market-driven solutions that enable pastoralists to access new or improved inputs and services. It increases resilience by ensuring value chain growth is inclusive of women, men, youth and community groups that have the capacity to reach higher value markets, through the use of key partnerships and small-scale, demand-driven investments
