Who We Are

Accelerating Institutional and Food Systems Development (AIFSD) program seeks to sustainably reduce poverty and hunger in Kenya by strengthening the capacity of key institutions and creating a strong enabling environment for food systems development to enable the wide application of technologies and innovations for increased productivity, incomes and nutrition.


The program, which runs from October 2021 to September 2024 has three strategic development objectives:

objective one

Increase inclusive agricultural growth

objective 2

Enhance resilience among people and systems

objective 3

Improve food and nutrition security in the targeted value chains in the Feed the Future zones of influence in Kenya


AIFSD is implemented in 10 counties and has the following four components.
