Kenya Country Report
At the start of the 1990s, DFID support to sustainable agriculture mainly comprised a series of projects which supported GoK’s national agricultural research and communications services. DFID support for district level agriculture service delivery activities, principally through the EMI project, had recently ceased, although with the expectation that further support would be developed. In response to a DFID (EA) policy decision to withdraw from infrastructure development, support for construction of rural infrastructure had also wound down. 2. Following the death of the Senior RNR Adviser for Kenya in 1992, development of the SA portfolio drifted until 1994, when appointment of a new Senior RNR Adviser was rapidly followed by approval of several projects, principally with GoK. These medium-term commitments to upstream research and communications meant that scope to rapidly develop any executable strategy in response to the 1995 Kenyan RNR strategy would require an increase in resources above the then level of around £5m per annum.
