The programme goal is to foster market-driven development of Kenya's informal dairy industry, working with poor smallholder dairy producers and traders to strengthen their capacity to respond to market opportunities. It builds understanding of the market and technical knowledge of production processes, and improves organizational and enterprise skills. Dairy production improves household nutrition and provides extra income. The programme will benefit 24,000 households in the areas of Bungoma, Trans Nzoia, Kakamega, Uasin Gishu, Nandi, Nakuru, Nyamira, Kisii and Bomet.
On land and natural resource governance, the programme provides support for community mobilization and capacity building for a participatory analysis and mapping with dairy groups and land access for the groups and their communities. These activities also include documenting and mapping of existing land ownership and using practices and records and sharing experiences with others.
