The project aims to increase economic growth in rural communities by improving competitiveness and inclusiveness in the livestock value chain. Included in the info note is information on REGAL-AG, low emissions development, the agricultural and environmental context in Kenya and information on agricultural practices that impact GHG emissions and carbon sequestration.
REGAL-AG has four interrelated program objectives: 1) improve the enabling environment by working with pastoral communities to advocate for policy improvements to expand their access to critical services and markets; 2) create or expand end-market opportunities and catalyze commercial investments; 3) increase livestock productivity by identifying and supporting the development of market-driven solutions for improved inputs and services; and 4) increase resilience by ensuring value chain growth that includes women, youth, and local community groups.
