Breakfast meeting of the Status of agriculture sector after devolution to county government, 9th December 2014

Date: Tuesday 9th December, 2014

Venue: Intercontinental Hotel, Nairobi

Introduction:

The agriculture sector has over the years been the largest contributor to our country’s economic growth. In addition, the sector also makes a large portion of rural household incomes. In recent years, the sector has undergone a number of institutional changes - the most significant being the transfer of majority of the functions to the County Governments. Under the current constitutional dispensation, in the agricultural sector, the national government is mandated to deal with policy issues while county governments are responsible for crop and animal husbandry, livestock sale yards, county abattoirs, plant and animal disease control and fisheries.

In an effort to understand the performance of the agricultural sector under the new governance structure, the Institute conducted an analysis on how the sector has adjusted to these changes and progress made thus far. The main objective of the study was to understand the organization and coordination within the sector, progress in implementation of programs and activities, and funding for the sector under the new dispensation.  It is in the light of this that the Institute organized a policy forum where key findings from this analysis were presented and discussed.
