Policy Data Snapshot: Kenya

Date Published:

This brief features selected data on Kenya relevant to USAID/Kenya's Feed the Future work. According to the Enabling the Business of Agriculture Index, Kenya scores well in enabling access to seed, financial services, and ICT. Its water management policy framework is also extremely strong. Kenya performs relatively well in the areas of transport and access to machinery, but its fertilizer and market scores suggest room for improvement. Overall, Kenya provides a business-friendly environment for importing agricultural technologies and products but could do more to ensure quality control once they enter the market.
 
This snapshot was produced by the Feed the Future Enabling Environment for Food Security project, a global support mechanism for Missions and Washington-based USAID offices to address policies as well as legal, institutional, and regulatory factors that affect food security.
