About KCSAP

Preamble: Agriculture is the backbone of Kenyan economy. It contributes directly 27% of GDP; 65% of export earnings; and 27% of the GDP indirectly through links with manufacturing, distribution and service-related sectors. However, Kenyan agriculture, 98% of which is rain-fed, is highly and increasingly vulnerable to erratic and extreme weather, including prolonged droughts and flooding, which are increasing in frequency and intensity with climate change. Other factors include commodity price fluctuations and crop and livestock pests and diseases.

Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) aims to achieve three outcomes (triple wins): i) sustainably increasing agricultural productivity and incomes; ii) adapting agricultural systems and building resilience to climate change; and iii) reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It offers an appropriate strategic framework for responding to the challenges. Meeting these challenges requires technologies, innovations and management practices (TIMPs) to build resilience and adaption to climate change.

TIMPs exist within the National Agricultural Research System (KALRO, KEFRI, KIRDI, KMFRI, agricultural universities and others), developed by scientists in these institutions, which can respond to CSA needs of the country. Some of these TIMPs require further testing, prior to their up-scaling for adoption in the target project counties.
