Given that the agricultural industry has the ability to improve food security, reduce poverty, and lower child mortality through better nutrition, among other goals, it is well positioned to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
Making the switch to sustainable agriculture is therefore essential because climate change is already endangering people and the environment.
Investing in farmers’ access to services is key to building their own businesses Successful cases of improving farmer income found that interventions built on productivity enhancing technologies (quality fertilizers, better seeds, improved livestock, and micro irrigation) yielded 80-140% income gains whereas those focusing on value chain inefficiencies registered in the 20-60% range.
Some of our objective under the Agriculture theme are:
Currently we have been able to support 1000 farmers which includes 100 agro dealers, 122 agro SME’s, 12 seed companies and 1500 households across 7 counties.
Families in marginalized communities are leaving their homes in search of food, water, and pasture, indicating that they are relocating farther and farther away from healthcare facilities, which will disrupt continuity of care and limit access to SRHR services.
Development requires a healthy population since only healthy societies can be innovative and productive.
The COVID 19 pandemic has highlighted disparities, raising important concerns about how the most vulnerable members of our societies can access healthcare and lead healthy lifestyles.
Health issues are being exacerbated by environmental disruptions like the climate crisis and nature loss. As a result, many nations are dealing with a double burden of disease, where infectious diseases are still quite common and NCDs are spreading quickly.
The Sustainable Agribusiness Program Kenya is the forefront and advocating for the above.
Healthy agricultural systems are essential to our quality of life and economy. Agricultural SMEs and farmer organizations exist by virtue of the existence of primary producers, i.e. small, medium and large-scale farmers.
