KeLCoP Investor Forum

In a significant stride towards boosting the livestock sector and agricultural development, the Kenya Livestock Commercialization Project (KeLCoP) successfully concluded a series of investor forums across several counties. These forums, held in Nakuru, Baringo, Elgeyo Marakwet, Samburu, Marsabit, Trans Nzoia, Bungoma, Kakamega, Siaya, and Busia, aimed to sensitize the private sector within each county about the diverse entry points along the value chains integral to the project. This initiative seeks to enhance collaboration between the public and private sectors and stimulate economic growth by capitalizing on the lucrative potential of goat meat production, dairy goat farming, indigenous chicken rearing, and apiculture.

The investor forums served as vital platforms for sharing insights into the various facets of the KeLCoP value chains. Local businesses, entrepreneurs, and potential investors gained valuable information about the project's key focal points, including goat meat production, which holds substantial promise for both domestic consumption and export. The dairy goat value chain, another focal point of the initiative, showcased the potential for improving milk production and creating a sustainable source of livelihood for local communities. Indigenous chicken rearing emerged as a critical avenue for small-scale farmers, fostering both food security and economic empowerment at the grassroots level. Additionally, the forums shed light on the potential of apiculture in these counties, highlighting the importance of beekeeping in boosting pollination, honey production, and related products.

The investor forums not only facilitated knowledge sharing but also fostered collaboration and networking among stakeholders. By bringing together government representatives, industry experts, potential investors, and local entrepreneurs, these events catalyzed discussions around innovative strategies, challenges, and opportunities within the livestock sector. Moreover, the forums emphasized the project's commitment to creating an enabling environment for sustainable growth, incorporating modern practices, technology, and market linkages. As the counties gear up to embark on this livestock commercialization journey, the success of these investor forums lays a strong foundation for future partnerships, investments, and advancements in the Kenyan livestock industry.
