KAJIADO COUNTY SIGN AN MOU WITH SEED SYSTEMS GROUP

Kajiado Government through the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Irrigation & Fisheries today on 29th August, 2023, signed an MoU with Seed Systems Group (a non-profit organization registered in the United States as a 501(C) and headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya) on Sustainable Adoption of Improved Pasture and Fodder production and conservation among Smallholder Agro-Pastoralists in Kajiado County. This will boost the implementation of Modulated pastoralism, a model that is aimed at phasing out of the unsustainable traditional pastoralism in favour of adoption of economically and culturally sustainable livestock production systems through increased pasture and fodder production.

The MoU was signed by Mr Francis Ole Sakuda (County Secretary) on behalf of the County Government of Kajiado and by Dr Wilson Songa on behalf of Seed Systems Group (Director). Present to witness the signing were Augustine Sekeyian (County Attorney), Dr Jacktone Achola (CECM for Agriculture, Livestock, Irrigation & Fisheries), Francis Metian (CO for Livestock & Irrigation), Paul Tikani (Seeds Systems Group) and Nelson Karumba, Advocate (Seed Systems Group).
