Our objective is to increase the incentives for private sector participation and investment in the agricultural sector while enhancing access to finance and markets and the adoption of climate smart technologies and use of inputs (seeds and fertilizer). In Kenya, AGRA works with the Government and various strategic partners to support agriculture policy reforms. We also work to improve the incomes and food security of the rice, maize, beans, and potato farmers
In the first decade, AGRA built an asset base in technologies, partnerships and models that can be scaled for significant impact on the status of inclusive agriculture in Kenya. Our strategy and support for Kenya from 2017 to 2021 seeks to bring all of these elements to strengthen the agriculture sector delivery systems for improved productivity and marketing of produce to impact incomes and improve food security for at least 1.65 million smallholder farming households through an investment of $21m.
