The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is implementing
the Program for Climate Smart Livestock (PCSL) in Kenya, Uganda,
and Ethiopia. PCSL is designed to build the capacity of governments,
the private sector, and livestock keepers towards improving livestock
productivity, reducing greenhouse gas emissions while adapting to
climate change. In late November 2020, ILRI held a virtual workshop
with relevant stakeholders to discuss potential transformative pathways
for the livestock sector in Kenya.
The workshop brought together 35 Kenyan stakeholders representing
a variety of organisations, including government ministries, the private
sector, NGOs and research institutes.
The workshop was carried out virtually, via Zoom, over 2 days,
1 week apart. Digital tools were used for gathering individual
reflections (Mentimeter) and group discussions (Miro).
The workshop activities and outcomes are outlined in the following
pages. They draw a lot of inspiration from the Futures Thinking
Playbook by Kate Bishop King (2017) and the Three Horizons
Framework as applied by Bill Sharpe and colleagues (2016).
This report shares both the workshop methodology and exercises
carried out, as well as the key outcomes.
