Partnership for Safe Poultry in Kenya (PSPK) OVERVIEW• March 2009-March 2011• Active in 9 districts across Kenya• PSPK leverages the time & expertise of international and East African regional volunteers to provide technical assistance to poultry sector stakeholders 2
Program Objectives• Promote improved bio-security practices to reduce the threat of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenze (HPAI) and other poultry diseases• Increase the competitiveness of Kenyan eggs and poultry meat• Increase income for Kenyan rural smallholder poultry producers 3
PSPK• Provides economic incentives for smallholder poultry producers to adopt bio-security measures• Targets producers in major poultry-producing parts of the country• Could easily be applied across the region, along the larger bird migration corridors 4
The PSPK Approach• Bringing together poultry sector stakeholders for collaboration, information sharing, and outreach• Conducting analyses to identify stakeholders, constraints, and opportunities• Strengthening local capacity• Introducing simple, low-cost bio-security measures• Creating linkages• Leveraging volunteers 5
Stakeholder Collaboration & Outreach• Stakeholder consultations• Workshops• Kenya Poultry Sector Knowledge System (www.kenyapoultry.org) 6
Poultry Sector Analyses• Stakeholder inventory• Value chain analyses, including assessment of feed testing facilities• Targeted studies on sector competitiveness issues• These analyses have shown: Growing consumer preference –indigenous poultry meat & eggs, white meat Need for branding Opportunity to aggregate production Need for quality standards & improved management systems/practices 7

Smallholder Linkages to Markets,Market Information, Inputs, Finance• Aggregating production to access inputs• Innovative financing model• Linkages to finance institutions• Partnerships with buyers/traders 9
Trade Level• Trained 6 traders on biosecurity (Transportation processing & marketing) and consumer safety concerns• Develop brand for each trader and link to supermarket supply• Train 44 live bird market traders from Nairobi & its environs on risk of live bird handling and consumer safety concerns• Encourage supply linkage between processors and live bird market traders to reduce live bird market risks 10
Innovative Elements• Dual focus on smallholder production/incomes and measures to address threats from the avian influenza pandemic• Highly targeted to specific aspects of the poultry sector• Establishment of partnerships of key players along the value chain including partnership with traders – Avoids duplication of efforts/reduced costs – Leverages on partners’ resources to maximize impact 11
Opportunities for Replication/ Regional Expansion • Replicate value chain analyses and stakeholder inventories across other East African countries • Invite regional stakeholders to participate in regional workshops & study tours • Enable regional stakeholders to access information on the Kenya Poultry Sector Knowledge System • Facilitate cross visits & field days for other farmers, traders, and input providers 12
Lessons learned: improving sector competitiveness• Lower mortality/higher productivity on farm level resulting in higher revenues for farmers• Improved logistics for trading partners because of farmers grouping (reduced transaction costs) and trader contracting resulting in lower costs for commercial partners• Incentives of the premium for local/indigenous chicken are being passed on to farmers resulting in higher revenues for farmers
