                 Dr. Stephen Mureithi training the participants

Planting grasses and fodder production remains culturally unaccepted as an economic activity. Over the years, most people have and believed that only God can plant grasses. God we are helping you plant grass,” this was a sentiment by farmers in Golbo ward, Marsabit County during the pasture week held from 3rd to 12thOctober 2016. A big gap, therefore, needs to be filled through training and demonstration on pasture production for both subsistence and commercial uses. This subsequently improves animal feed sustainability and livelihoods. The people of Marsabit County are becoming receptive towards pasture production as a consequence of the training.

The pasture week in Marsabit County aimed to inaugurate pasture production demonstrations, land preparation and broadcasting of the grass seeds. The participating stakeholders in the training were the University of Nairobi represented by Dr. Stephen Mureithi from department of Land Resources and Agricultural Technology (LARMAT). Officials from REGAL-AG, Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries, Marsabit County, Kenya Agricultural Livestock Research Organisation (KARLO) represented by Mr. Hussein Walaga and National Drought Management Authority (NDMA) representatives

The people of Marsabit County have agreed to be part of the change for sustainability through fodder production.

                                              Workshop forum  in session

Dr. Koech Oscar, of the University of Nairobi (UoN), Department of Land Resource Management and Agricultural Technology (LARMAT), a pasture expert at the African Dryland Institute for Sustainability (ADIS) - UoN attended a National Dialogue on Policy Frameworks for Climate Change Adaptation, Disaster Risk Reduction, and Rangeland Management and Governance in Kenya’s Rangelands held on 19th – 23rd September 2016, at Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge, Naivasha. The workshop was a realization of the important roles the rangelands play in Kenya, where it covers about 89% of land mass and a home to many livestock and wildlife populations. The areas are also important for biodiversity conservation.

Rangelands of Kenya contribute to about 10% GDP, 45% AGDP and hosts over 70% livestock population. The need to manage these lands in a more sustainable manner is what has become a concern to experts, practitioners and policy makers. Given that these lands are special ecosystems, sound management interventions are urgently needed to reverse the already negative impacts done while adapting communities to Climate change phenomenons. The need for policy that governs rangelands use, management and development is of urgency, if the attainment of Vision 2030 and SDGs of 2015 are to be realized.

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.

                                                          Background
I was invited to attend two meetings
I. The ACTESA/COMESA regional communication workshop (18-19th August 2014)
II. COP-MOP7 preparatory meeting (20th August 2014)
In both case, I attended the meetings as a stakeholder and an expert in biotechnology and biosafety.
1. The ACTESA/COMESA Regional Communication Workshop
The regional consultative and communications workshop on biotechnology and biosafety workshop was organized by Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), through its specialized agency, the Alliance for Commodity Trade in Eastern and Central Africa (ACTESA), and in collaboration of the Ministry of Environment and Forest (FDR) Ethiopia. This was a follow-up to the 32nd Meeting of the Council of Ministers in February 2014, where the COMESA Policy on Biotechnology and Biosafety was adopted, taking into account the sovereign right of each Member State.The goal of the workshop was to raise awareness on the developments to date of the COMESA Biotech and Biosafety Policy approval as well as allow member states to discuss on the next steps towards implementation of the regional policy.

Agriculture is the mainstay of most African economies and directly contributes about 26% of the GDP annually and another 25% indirectly in most East African countries. The sector accounts for about 65% of total exports in Eastern Africa and provides more than 70% per cent of informal employment in the rural areas. However, food and nutritional security still remain a major challenge. Farmers mainly practice subsistence crop production using inferior quality seed of low yielding crop varieties. The region requires breeders who are responsive to farmers’ needs and who have the skills to apply modern and participatory approaches to crop breeding, especially for those crops that are particularly important in
Africa.

Bioversity International: research for development in agricultural and forest biodiversity

 Research proposal writing courses

Many African farmers, especially in marginal areas, rely on neglected and underutilized species (NUS) for their livelihoods. But the commercialization of NUS is constrained by a weak knowledge base, poorly developed value chains and inadequate capacity and policies. Often, bottlenecks require biophysical and socio-economic research to generate new knowledge that value chain actors can apply to increase sales and profits.

The project ‘Strengthening capacities and informing policies for developing value chains of neglected and underutilized crops in Africa’,  through a grant from the EU-ACP Science & Technology programme, is seeking to develop such research capacity.

Bioversity International, the International Foundation for Science (IFS) and our partners now offer young African scientists training in the art of developing research project proposals that solve problems related to the value chains of Bambara groundnut and amaranth in particular, and NUS in general.

This Call for Research Applications is focused on the value chains of priority NUS plants in three sub-regions: Eastern Africa, Southern Africa, and West Africa, respectively. We are interested in applications that focus on:

  1. The value chains of two target crops:  Bambara groundnut and amaranth (grain or vegetable). Preference will be given to applicants working on these crops.
  2. Priority species of NUS plants, as identified at two regional workshops in 2010 (please refer to the call).
  3. Other NUS plants of national/regional importance.

Three regional courses will be held, targeting scientists in eligible countries only (see table below).

Although African Leafy Vegetables have been recognized as contributing to food and nutrition security among rural poor, availability of seed continues to be a challenge. The University of Nairobi, in collaboration with KARI Mtwapa is conducting a participatory seed bulking of select superior local accessions of cowpea among women farmers in Kilifi County. The project is being conducted under the KAPAP Project “Enhancing Production, Value Addition and Marketing of Indigenous Vegetables (cowpea, spider plant, nightshades, amaranth, pumpkin), French Beans and Mushroom Products among Smallholder Farmers in Kenya” for a 3 year period from 2011-2014 by the University of Nairobi and other partners.

The title of his presentation was “wheat stem rust: battling an old foe with cloned resistance genes from wild relatives.” The basis of his research is on how microbial effector proteins, their host targets, and plant immune receptors co-evolve. Global wheat production is threatened by stem rust and other diseases and this has led to high wheat yield reductions. The Wulff group uses mutational genomics to isolate and study genes that restrict wheat stem rust and septoria disease in wheat. Their long term goal is to isolate multiple resistance (R) genes and deploy them in combinations as single loci or stacks which
