Agriculture Permanent Secretary, James Ongwae told The Standard that Treasury has already allocated Sh40 million and the balance will be made available in the next fiscal year, beginning July. He
said this action plan dubbed Njaa Marufuku Kenya, will be incorporated in the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that Kenya has signed, pledged to achieve by 2015.
The Ministry of Agriculture, through the Kenya Food Security Programme, has developed this draft action plan with the support of FAO.
"Such reforms are essential for Kenya to achieve the shift from subsistence to market-oriented production, and to ensure that the sector will become once again the main engine of economic growth, as well as eliminate hunger and poverty," says Ongwae
