This process was initiated during the national rangeland policy dialogue held in 2016 that established that there are various policies relevant to Range Management, However, strategies to operationalize the policies were lacking. As a result, a workshop held in June 2017 produced the draft Rangeland Strategy of 2017 which highlights many issues and frameworks necessary for providing guidelines for sustainable interventions in the Rangelands.

Students and FoNNAP team loading Parthenium hysterophorus in sacks for proper disposal at Hyena Dam at Nairobi National park

Four Range Management students (Jemmimmah Omondi James Mema, Felix Odegi and Naomi Nzilani,) participated in the removal of invasive alien plant – Parthenium hysterophorus at the Hyena Dam, Nairobi National Park on 9th February 2019.

The exercise had been organized by the Friends of Nairobi National Park (FoNNAP) for its membership. The park is currently under serious threat from Parthenium hysterophorus which is allelopathic and so it competes major wildlife pastures and forage. Increased growth of P. hysterophorus is as a result of extensive activities within the park such as Standard Gauge Railway construction, frequent maintenance of the access roads and frequent traffic of tourists due to its proximity to the capital city of Kenya. The FoNNAP team currently considers manual extraction of weed as the only available option since chemical control is prohibited at the Park while biological control will only happen after control trials and approvals passed by government. The students were led by Dr. Staline Kibet a lecturer in LARMAT ,College of Agriculture and Veterinary sciences.

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.
