Introduction

National Agricultural Value Chain Development Project (NAVCDP) is a Community Driven Development Project that seeks to increase market participation and value addition for targeted small-scale farmers in Kenya who are engaged across 33 counties.

The NAVCDP will build on the foundation set by two existing World Bank funded projects namely, the National Agricultural and Rural Inclusive Growth Project and the Kenya Climate Smart Agriculture Project, and will mostly focus on a subset of farmers drawn from these two projects.The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to increase market participation and value addition for targeted farmers in select value chains in project areas.

The project will deepen investments in existing interventions around productivity enhancement, community led farmer extension, water management and data driven value chain services. It will also introduce intensified investments into select value chains, scale up value addition and market linkages with agribusiness off-takers and small and medium enterprises, support farmer-led irrigation development (FLID), enhance access to credit, and support the rollout of urban food system pilots in select clusters.

The FLID activities will focus on developing water efficient irrigation systems, water harvesting and efficient water use, building drought adaptive capacity and climate resilience, while pilots of urban food systems based on climate-smart and safe agriculture principles will be rolled out in Nairobi and surrounding counties. The project will also benefit other value chain actors at various levels such as extension workers, aggregators, logistics support providers and SMEs operating within the value chain.
