-As prepared-

Good morning!

Honorable Felix Koskei, Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries; Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen. 

I am delighted to join you at today’s rollout of the Agri-Nutrition Resource Manual for Trainers. USAID is proud to have partnered with the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries and the Ministry of Health to create a toolkit that helps rural Kenyans improve their nutrition and resiliency. Healthier people are better able to adapt to survive periods of drought or famine. For 50 years, the United States has partnered with the Government of Kenya to reach our joint development objectives. This is one more example of how we can work together to realize a better future.

The Agri-Nutrition Resource Manual and Toolkit is an important step toward teaching households and communities how to integrate nutrition more effectively into their everyday lives. Improved nutrition reduces lifestyle diseases and builds the resiliency of rural families, helping them endure times of drought or high food prices.

Part of the U.S. Government’s Feed the Future Initiative, Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Improving Resilience is reducing hunger and poverty, increasing resilience and social stability, and building a foundation for economic growth among pastoral communities in Kenya’s arid and semi-arid lands. It unites humanitarian and development assistance to build resilience and expand economic opportunities in the arid lands through disaster risk and conflict reduction, natural resource management, and strengthening of livestock and other sectors.
