Kenya Crops and Dairy Market System

Speeches Shim

The Kenya Crops and Dairy Market Systems (KCDMS) is a five-year USAID program designed to increase agricultural production and reduce poverty and malnutrition in Kenya by spurring competitive, inclusive, and resilient market systems in the horticulture and dairy sectors.

The agricultural sector is the backbone of the economy, contributing approximately 33 percent of Kenya’s Gross Domestic Product, but producers continue to face constraints that limit growth and perpetuate food insecurity. The program partners with private sector actors to transform agricultural market systems, create an enabling environment for businesses to thrive, and encourage government-level reforms that encourage investment.
