Nairobi / Nukuru – IL&FS Cluster Development Initiative (IL&FS Clusters) launched the India-Kenya Dairy Innovation Bridge Program (IKDIBP) on Friday, the 16th of January. The program is jointly funded by USAID India and IL&FS Clusters. Heifer International, Kenya is the technical partner and will work with IL&FS Clusters in implementing the program in Kenya.

The IKDIBP will facilitate adoption and replication of selected innovations from the Indian dairy sector through a series of interventions along the value chain wherein both backward and forward linkages would be developed in an integrated manner. The Rift Valley Province and the Central Province in Kenya have been identified for intervention since they account for most of the milk produced in the country. The goal of the program is to improve the income of smallholder farmers through increased milk productivity and reduced wastages along the dairy value chain. The activities include training and capacity building of various stakeholders, setting up of infrastructure facilities, and institutional strengthening.
