In my capacity as Chair, Council of Governors Agriculture Committee, I joined Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya at the release of 26 vehicles for the Kenya Climate Smart Agriculture project at Kilimo grounds, Nairobi.
This is the first batch, of the 61 project vehicles, that we commissioned
to enhance the capacity of the counties and research institutions in undertaking field work. Targeting 24 counties, the programme is financed by the World Bank , Kenya Government, Counties and beneficiaries through matching funds.
It seeks to increase agricultural productivity and build resilience to climate change risks in the targeted smallholder farming and pastoral communities.
Tharaka Nithi County is among the 24 counties participating in the programme.
