Sub-county and Ward Administrators from nine Sub-counties in Nakuru County participated in a sensitization forum regarding the upcoming farmers’ registration under the National Agricultural Value Chain Development Project (NAVCDP). The event aimed to inform administrators about the registration process and emphasize the importance of completing it within the specified timeframe.
Agriculture CECM Leonard Bor, accompanied by Nakuru County Commissioner Loyford Kibaara, urged administrators to ensure the efficient and timely registration of farmers. The collected data will play a crucial role in informing decision-making processes to enhance the agricultural sector across all value chains in the county.
The National Agricultural Value Chain Development Project is a Community-Driven Development initiative designed to increase market participation and value addition for targeted small-scale farmers. The project aims to empower farmers and improve their overall productivity.
The Subcounties involved in this initiative include Njoro, Molo, Kuresoi South, Kuresoi North, Bahati, Naivasha, Gilgil, Rongai, and Subukia. The presence of Agriculture Chief Officer Newton Mwaura, Livestock, Fisheries, and Veterinary Services Chief Dr. Michael Cheruiyot, NAVCDP County Coordinator Peter Githinguri, officials from the national government, and District Commissioners from various Subcounties highlighted the collaborative effort to drive agricultural development in Nakuru County.
