Trade Policy at Work

Greening Kenya’s Trade Policy: Suggested Provisions

This paper aims to inform the finalisation of Kenya’s National Trade Policy, by suggesting trade provisions that can support climate-aware agro-processing development in the country. Kenya has embraced agro-processing as one of the key avenues to achieving its long term industrialization agenda, and has already been taking policy measures in this regard. However, in a world of accelerating climate change and global value chains, synergies are required across the policy landscape to ensure that agro-processing development is climate-aware, trade-driven and food security-enhancing.
