The Centre for Sustainable Dryland Ecosystems and Societies (CSDES) staff attended the launch of Agricultural Sector Development Support Programme (ASDSP) in Kajiado County where they got a chance to interact and share with various stakeholders and community members about CSDES project. The launch took place on 17th July, 2013 at the Maasai Technical Training Institute (MTTI) grounds.

The Agricultural Sector Development Support Programme (ASDSP) is a sector-wide Programme implemented by the Government of Kenya in collaboration with Development Partners. The core focus of the Programme is to facilitate demand-driven, stakeholder-led and coordinated efforts by relevant public and private sector actors. These efforts will lead to transformation of the agricultural sector into innovative, commercially oriented, competitive and modern industry.

The CSDES project team was led by the CSDES Director/PI Prof. Jesse Njoka and Project manager Peter Kamande.  Administrative assistant, Sylvia Sumare and Communication Consultant Daniel Kamau also attended the launch.

Speaking during the launch of the programme, the Deputy Governor of Kajiado County, Mr. Paul Ntiati called on all the stakeholders to work together to make sure there is value addition for agricultural produce in Kajiado County. He said that if all stakeholders will work together, the agricultural sector in Kajiado County will be transformed into more viable business and the citizens of Kajiado County will benefit economically.
