This is the final report of the Expert Group "Commercializing Agricultural Sector in Kenya: Wake the Kenyan Giant!". The report introduces the context of SIANI, the Kenyan framework 'Agricultural Sector Development Support Programme, ASDSP' and the concept of the Expert Group.
It summarizes the activities undertaken by the Expert Group, analyses the work, and gives recommendations based on the experience of the group.
The scope of work is to highlight the issues holding back commercialization of agriculture, with special focus on food and nutritional security:
1) What is the current status of the agricultural sector in Kenya?
2) Why is the sector the way it is?
3) How can stakeholders harness the sector’s potential and remove obstacles to commercialisation?
Focus is on the producer segment of the agri-value chain in the context of markets for both inputs and outputs.
