K-SALES Brochure

Originally published on October 22, 2014.

The Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) are home to some of the poorest segments of the population, which are highly vulnerable to drought, among other environmental challenges. Kenya’s ASAL make up 84% of Kenya’s total land surface. These areas, characterized by low and erratic rainfall, support about 8 million Kenyans (20 percent of the population), as well as 50 percent and 65 percent of the livestock and wildlife population respectively.

The Kenya Semi-Arid Livestock Enhancement Support (K-SALES) Project, is a US$ 14.5 million Food for Progress initiative funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and implemented by Land O’ Lakes International Development. Scheduled to run from September 2013 to September 2016, this three-year project is working to improve the competitiveness of the meat value chain to increase productivity and boost marketing and trade.
