Our Purpose

To increase equitable income, employment and improved food security of male and female target groups as a result of improved production and productivity in the rural small-holder farm and off-farm sectors.

Our Focus

Commercialization of agribusiness and market development activities of the agriculture sector. Especially at the smallholder level, will contribute to increased farm productivity and incomes; improve the availability of food in both rural and urban areas and enhance the sector's contribution to the overall national economy.

Our Objective

•Establishment of inclusive sector-wide coordination. • Harmonizing mechanisms amount the various implementing institutions & Development Partners. • Facilitate creation of enabling institutional & policy framework essential to ASDS goals.

The Components

Major components are - Sector Coordination, Environmental Resilience and Social Inclusion as well as Value Chain Development
This supports the establishment of an inclusive institutional framework for improved agricultural sector coordination and an enabling policy and institutional environment for the realization of the Agricultural sector Development strategy (ASDS).
It supports interventions aimed at ensuring that efforts to strengthen priority value chains are environmentally sound and resilient to climate fluctuations, and that women, youth and economically and socially vulnerable groups are able to participate effectively in and benefit from the improved value chains.
Key issue here is commercialization of the agricultural sector. This is achieved through strengthening the efficiency and effectiveness of prioritized value chains through establishment of operational partnerships and strengthening of horizontal and vertical value chain (VC) stakeholder bodies at the County and cross-County levels.
