Climate Change, Food Security and Trade: Institutional Interplay and Information Exchange in Kenya

This briefing paper presents the institutional interplay and information exchange in Murang’a and Makueni counties in Kenya in relation to climate change, food security and trade issues. Findings indicate that, horizontal linkges, that is institutional interlinkages and information exchange among stakeholders within counties, are strong, particularly interministerial and interactions of the private sector with county ministries. However, vertical linkages between counties’ stakeholders and the national government were found to be weak.
