Dr. Jane Ambuko (Principal Investigator/Innovation Champion) Presenting Proof of Concept Award to Prof. A. Mwang'ombe, Principal, CAVS

 

The award was given for a research project titled ‘Innovative Cooling Option for Smallholder Farmers’. The project is funded by the USAID under the Kenya Feed the Future Innovation Engine(KFIE).The project is a collaborative initiative involving various partners in Kenya and USA. The University of Nairobi is the lead institution with team members including Dr. Jane Ambuko (Principal Investigator/Innovation Champion, Prof. Margaret Hutchinson (Team member), Ms. Nancy Kemunto (Field Manager) and Mr. Oscar SalimWanyama (Field Manager). Other partners include Dr. Willis Owino (Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology), Dr. Lusike Wasilwa (Kenya Agricultural Research Institute), Ms Britta Hansen (HortCRSP), Prof. Michael Reid (University of California Davis) and Mr. Ron Khosla (Store-it-cold). The University of Nairobi is the only public institution that was awarded in this wave. The project is funded under the proof of concept (Phase I) stage with potential to be scaled up tothe roll-out phase (Phase II).

The goal of the Coolbot project is to provide poor smallholder horticultural farmers with an alternative low-cost cold storage option. Why cold storage? Horticultural commodities are very highly perishable with a very short shelf life. For smallholder farmers, this means that they have to harvest and sell the commodities immediately. If they do not get markets for their produce, the produce goes to waste.

The University organizes tree planting activities twice a year i.e. in each rainy season.  This is in line with one of the University’s core values of respect for and conservation of the environment and also with the National Reform Policy in Forestry, which requires active participation by all stakeholders in order to ensure the attainment of at least 10% forest cover in Kenya. This year’s theme was “Greener, Cleaner Environment” and the target was to extend an existing botanical garden with at least 500 medicinal plants constituting about 50 different species in collaboration with other institutions and members of the public.

CAVS was at it once more in championing for creation of awareness in executing the constitution in public institutions and enhancing public service integrity thanks to its RRI activities. Today’s RRI public lecture had its focus on leadership, public service and veterinary services and practice. The guest speaker was Ms. Naomi Njuguna from School of Law-UoN.

In her opening remarks, she acknowledged the contribution of agriculture and veterinary science in the growth of the nation which, according to the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) 2013 Economic Survey, grew by 3.8 per cent and contributed 17.6 per cent of the overall Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

This being the present case, she admitted that in implementing the constitution, agriculture serves as the key to empowering citizens with socio-economic rights. With regards to this, professionals have to embrace value based leadership especially in the public service sector.

Dr Laban MacOpiyo of LARMAT Leads a Field Assessment Team to Marsabit and Isiolo Counties for the Waterhole Monitoring Project.

Dr. Laban MacOpiyo led a team from the University of Nairobi (UoN) and Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to undertake extensive field activities in the counties of Isiolo and Marsabit for the Waterhole monitoring project.

The waterhole monitoring project is a surface water resources monitoring project that is being implemented in the pastoral areas of Kenya to provide near real-time analysis of the variations in depth and status of watering pans and dams across the country.  The aim is to provide critical early warning information on the conditions of water pans and dams in terms of available water for livestock and human use. The monitoring process involves application of several technologies including remote sensing, site monitoring using mobile phones and modelling.

Dr. Jane Ambuko (Principal Investigator/Innovation Champion) Presenting Proof of Concept Award to Prof. A. Mwang'ombe, Principal, CAVS

The award was given for a research project titled ‘Innovative Cooling Option for Smallholder Farmers’. The project is funded by the USAID under the Kenya Feed the Future Innovation Engine(KFIE).The project is a collaborative initiative involving various partners in Kenya and USA. The University of Nairobi is the lead institution with team members including Dr. Jane Ambuko (Principal Investigator/Innovation Champion, Prof. Margaret Hutchinson (Team member), Ms. Nancy Kemunto (Field Manager) and Mr. Oscar SalimWanyama (Field Manager). Other partners include Dr. Willis Owino (Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology), Dr. Lusike Wasilwa (Kenya Agricultural Research Institute), Ms Britta Hansen (HortCRSP), Prof. Michael Reid (University of California Davis) and Mr. Ron Khosla (Store-it-cold). The University of Nairobi is the only public institution that was awarded in this wave. The project is funded under the proof of concept (Phase I) stage with potential to be scaled up tothe roll-out phase (Phase II).

The goal of the Coolbot project is to provide poor smallholder horticultural farmers with an alternative low-cost cold storage option. Why cold storage? Horticultural commodities are very highly perishable with a very short shelf life. For smallholder farmers, this means that they have to harvest and sell the commodities immediately. If they do not get markets for their produce, the produce goes to waste.
