Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS) Kenya Country Plan

Speeches Shim

The GFSS Country Plan for Kenya was co-written with by USG interagency involved in food security and nutrition work after extensive consultation with stakeholders from government ministries, private companies, universities, research institutes, international and local NGOs, donors and international organizations and was given extensive review and commentary by USG interagency partners in Washington, DC. As a living document, it is intended to be updated as needed in consultation with those parties over time.

The Kenya country plan is informed by performance impact, and population-based data and analysis of the first phase of Feed the Future; program evaluations; market analysis of the targeted agro-ecological zones and socioeconomic factors impacting poverty, nutrition and resilience; and stakeholder consultations. Key changes to the approach include: reduced size of the zone of influence; greater emphasis on private sector investment and market facilitation over on farm productivity; and addition of new value chains to increase resiliency and income. The USG Food Security team at Post employs a Collaborative, Learning and Adaptation (CLA) approach using realtime information and analysis to monitor performance and adjust activities to maximize investments, and respond to emerging opportunities and challenges.

Budget assumptions for interagency contributions to this plan reflect the FY 2017 Estimate and FY 2018 President's Budget, based on information publicly available at the time this document was prepared. Out year budget assumptions reflect a straight-line to the FY 2018 President's Budget. Any funding beyond FY 2017 is subject to the availability of funds, as determined by the President's Budget and a Congressional appropriation. Budget assumptions may require revision in the future, based on future President's Budgets.
