Breakfast Meeting on Achieving Sustained Food Supply in Kenya: The Role of Selected Policy Instruments


Breakfast Meeting on Achieving Sustained Food Supply in Kenya: The Role of Selected Policy Instruments

Date: Thursday, 24th October, 2013

Time: 7.00am - 10.00am

Venue: The Norfolk Hotel, Nairobi

The need for increased food supply in Kenya cannot be over emphasized. In the past, food availability in the country has been erratic, fluctuating from year to year thus calling for prudent measures to ensure a smooth supply of food for the citizenry. Over the years, Tegemeo Institute of Agricultural Policy and Development of Egerton University has been involved in research and analysis which is aimed at informing stakeholders on the effects of various policies on food security.

Recently the Institute conducted studies analyzing the effects of various policies and instruments that have been applied in response to challenges in the food and agricultural sectors. The studies carried out include: A Food Situation Assessment 2013, Advances in Kenya’s Policy on GMOs and its Effects on Food Security, and Implications of the Implementation of the VAT Act 2013 on Animal Feeds.  In light of this, the Institute organized a policy forum where findings from the studies were disseminated and discussed. 

The policy forum was organized as a breakfast meeting on Thursday, 24th October 2013 at the Norfolk Hotel, Nairobi. It drew participants from a select group of stakeholders from the public and private sectors, research and academia, civil society, development agencies, and farmer organizations, among others.
