About Kapp

Kenya Agricultural Productivity and Agribusiness Project (KAPAP) is phase II of the 12 years Adaptable Program Loan (APL) support by the World Bank, being implemented in 3 phases. The program design hinges on the premise that separate and poorly linked systems of research and extension yield low returns and the design therefore envisages an integrated approach in order to synchronize research, extension and farmer empowerment and other stakeholders initiatives.

The support provided under phase I of the APL facilitated the review and formulation of a National Agricultural Sector Extension Policy (NASEP) and its implementation framework, a National Livestock and Dairy Policy, a draft National Agricultural Research System (NARS) policy, as well as implementation of reforms in the coffee sub-sector.

The support also facilitated the carrying out of agricultural research resulting into the release of new crop varieties and other crop and animal related technologies; training of researchers, and capacity building of their institutions; empowerment of farmers and their organizations to strengthen demand for services; and piloting with encouraging results on public-private partnerships (PPPs) in provision and financing of extension services.
