Support to the establishment of Livestock Feed Security Assessment System in Kenya, Somalia, Uganda and Sudan - Kenya Activities

March 2020 – September 2022

This project aims to increase the resilience of livelihoods to threats and crises. Included in its outputs are to develop the capacity of participating countries to conduct livestock body condition assessments and range monitoring; and to institutionalise these activities within annual food and feed security assessments.

NDMA (National Drought Monitoring Authority) Field Monitors in the 23 Counties ASAL (Arid and Semi-Arid Lands) designated Kenyan counties were trained on the PET Methodology by our partner NGO AgriTechTalk Africa, during 2021-2022. A full pilot of PET Livestock, involving monthly, county-wide data collection by NDMA Field Monitors, and data analysis and reporting by AAI, was conducted from August 2021 to May 2022, in the six counties of Garissa, Kitui, Kwale, Marsabit and West Pokot. Data collection by Field Monitors in the 23 counties is continuing, with discussions on the future integration of PET into regular Early Warning activities by NDMA ongoing.
