The present intervention is relative to the Asal-Based Livestock and Rural Livelihood Support Project. It’s designed to address livestock productivity enhancement, and provide drought management actions through the active participation of the targeted beneficiaries for increased livestock offtake. This is in conformity with the Bank group’s assistance strategy in Kenya and the development strategy of the GOK both of which focus on poverty reduction in general and ensuring food security in particular. The project should impact positively on food security and nutrition practices thereby promoting human and economic development in the Region. The most important positive impact of the project should be to sustain and build the capacities of farmers in practicing the demand-driven approach. The project comprises four main components, namely: (i) Livestock Productivity Improvement; (ii) Animal Health Improvement; (iii) Livestock Marketing; and (iv) Drought Management and Food Security Initiatives.
The overall sector goal is to contribute to poverty reduction at the national and household levels, consistent with the government's policies of mainstreaming the ASAL areas in the economic framework of the country. The specific objective of the project is to improve sustainable rural livelihoods and food security through improved livestock productivity, marketing and support for drought management and food security initiatives in the ASAL.
The project beneficiaries includes agro-pastoralists, beekeepers, flayers of hides and skins, traders, butchers, private sector service providers, honey processors, transporters, consumers, etc, especially the poor and vulnerable in the project area. Women are particularly targeted with a number of activities including beekeeping, small stock and camel rearing, and other income generating and food security activities.
