NANDI COUNTY ADVANCES TO NAVCDP: Focusing on Commercialization and Value Chain Development for Smallholder Farmers
Nandi County is pleased to be among counties advancing to NARIGP’s phase TWO, known as NAVCDP, which shifts its focus from only Productivity and Profitability to commercialization and Value Chain development.
National Agricultural Value Chain Development Project (NAVCDP) builds on NARIGP/KCSAP efforts to enhance productivity and resilience for smallholder farmers transitioning to market-oriented commercialized farming.
The project aims to increase market participation and value addition for targeted farmers in select value chains, including those who are “in transition” or have “transitioned” from subsistence to commercialization.
During the Inaugural Implementation Support Mission, the CECM for Agriculture Dr. Kiplimo Araap Lagat led the County Government of Nandi Project Coordinating Unit CPCU, while representing the Agriculture CECM Caucus, in welcoming the new 5-year project. The County department of Agriculture is happy to announce that NAVCDP will scale up its reach to more farmers and wards in our county.
