Feed the Future - Accelerated Value Chain Development Program phase II
The AVCD program focuses on value chains that are critical to food and nutrition security; have good potential for development of market systems; and adaptable to a wide range of ecosystems.
The Feed the Future Kenya Accelerated Value Chain Development program seeks to widely apply technologies and innovations for selected value chains in order to competitively and sustainably increase productivity, contributing to inclusive agricultural growth, nutrition and food security in the country. The program’s main goal is to sustainably reduce poverty and hunger in the Feed the Future zones of influence in Kenya.
Focusing on the livestock, dairy, staple crops root crops and staple drought tolerant crops value chains in 21 counties in Kenya, the program aims to lift 326,000 households out of poverty, making them food secure and enabling their transition from subsistence to market-orientated farming.
