The Kenya study sets out to explore the potential for linkages between agriculture and social protection in a context characterized by large-scale, self-targeted agricultural programmes in the agricultural sector and social assistance programmes framed around a life-course approach in the social protection domain. The project focuses on two core questions:
• What are the current experiences of achieving coherence between Kenya’s agricultural and social protection policies and programmes?
• What lessons and insights do these experiences hold for achieving more and better coordination between the two sectors?
This study took place in Kenya (in Nairobi and Turkana) between 4 and 15 May 2015. The study was led by Rachel Slater (ODI) along with coresearchers Dr Elvin Nyukuri and Raphael Amodoi and FAO staff Marco Knowles and Maina Kibata.
