Outcome brief: 6 years of AVCD interventions in Kenya through the Accelerated Value Chain Development Program
Monica Parker. (15/11/2021). Outcome brief: 6 years of AVCD interventions in Kenya through the Accelerated Value Chain Development Program.
The AVCD potato project supported the integration of the private and public sectors in new potato value chains in Kenya that are led by farmers societies in the potato growing counties, generating 33,977,789 USD in sales. Per unit area yields have increased by almost 50%, as has the area of potato grown, with supplies from new certified seed production systems that are owned and run by the farmers organisations. Working closely with and supporting the county governments to develop their local potato sectors has been vital for success - potato is now included in the development plans of all the counties which have invested over $1m so far. This success bodes well for future phases of the project and for development of the national potato sector.
