A new network run by AgriFoSe2030 and International livestock research institute, ILRI, aims to develop a pool of policy analysts to sustainably support the development, implementation and evaluation of polices for enhanced agricultural transformation and food security in Kenya.

In Kenya and most of Africa, efforts to fight poverty, end hunger and spur economic growth inevitably revolve around the agriculture sector. There is need to support the development of institutional and human resource capacity to support Kenya’s agriculture sector with high-quality policy analyses and knowledge products in a sustainable manner to improve policy making, monitoring and evaluation and learning.  

Developing capacity for enhanced food security

AgriFoSe2030 and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) are implementing an initiative to contribute to efforts to address the human resource capacity challenge. The aim of the initiative is to develop the capacity of recent PhD graduates to undertake policy relevant research and analysis and disseminate their work to the policy-making community in support of agriculture and food security in the country.

This entails implementing a blended learning approach tailored to the context of the young scientists, emphasising ‘just in time’ and ‘on the job’ learning involving mentoring, coaching, advising, and networking.

The Initiative has several participating scientist within University of Nairobi. In LARMAT Dr. Stephen Murethi leads the team.

It is estimated that 1.3 billion tons of the food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted before it reaches the consumer. This represents 30% or one third of the total food produced. Fruits and vegetables alone contribute 44% or (~572,000,000 tons) of the total losses. There is a call for action to reduce these losses across the world and there are several global initiatives to towards this goal. It is against this background that the special seminar titled ‘Postharvest Technologies for Reduced Postharvest Losses’ was organized. The seminar was held at the University of Nairobi (UON), Faculty of Agriculture Building on 30th June, 2015.
