The objective of the NAMA is to reduce GHG emission intensities in the dairy sector by at least 3% below current levels and reach more than 600,000 dairy farmers in the country.
In Kenya, the sustainable intensification of dairy farming is associated with both increased incomes and improved nutritional outcomes for the rural poor. The livestock sector in Kenya is dominated by smallholders and characterized by low productivity, limited availability of chilling and processing plants and informal dairy markets resulting in high emissions per kilogram of milk and low climate resilience. Hence, a significant growth potential exists to increase productivity and climate resilience while also reducing emissions.
A first project to support the development and implementation of the NAMA is carried out by the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) leads this project in partnership with UNIQUE forestry and land use. The project will develop an institutional framework and financing mechanism, identify best practices at farm level and in extension services, and deploy the best available science to develop monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) approaches. It will also design and refine a NAMA proposal.
In this NAMA, Kenyan partners include the State Department of Livestock at the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries (MoALF), the Ministry of Environment, Water, and Natural Resources, Kenya Dairy Board and a number of dairy processors including Brookside Dairy and New KCC.
