climate-aware, trade-driven, food security-enhancing
agro-processing for East Africa

Leveraging the Buy Kenya, Build Kenya Strategy to Promote Sustainable Agro-processing

Agro-processing is one of the sectors expected to promote industrialisation, food security and creation of job opportunities in Kenya. However, agro-processing is facing high competition in both the domestic and international markets and its sustainability is threatened by rapid climate change. The Buy Kenya, Build Kenya (BKBK) strategy is one of the major policy measures being pursued by the government to improve the competitiveness and consumption of locally-produced goods and services. This study provides insights on how the BKBK strategy can be leveraged to promote climate aware, food security enhancing and trade driven agro-processing in Kenya. It sheds light on the key barriers to development of agro-processing and provides policy options for tapping into the BKBK strategy to support the sector.
