Enabling the Business of Agriculture Data Snapshot- Kenya

Published on November 30, 2017

Agrilinks_cover.PNGEnabling the business of Agriculture Data Snapshot- Kenya is a brief featuring selected data on Kenya from the World Bank's Enabling the Business of Agriculture Index (EBA) 2017 report relevant to USAID's Feed the Future work. Kenya scores well in enabling access to seed, financial services, and ICT. Its water management policy framework is also extremely strong. Kenya performs relatively well in the areas of transport and access to machinery, but its fertilizer and market scores suggest room for improvement. Overall, Kenya provides a business-friendly environment for importing agricultural technologies and products, but could do more to ensure quality control once they enter the market.

EBA is a unique tool for measuring the ease of doing agribusiness. EBA score data, coupled with contextual analysis and consultations with key stakeholders, can inform priority reforms and allow for transparent result tracking over time and across countries. The index scores the strength of the legal and institutional environment for agribusinesses across eight topics: seed, fertilizer, machinery, finance, markets, transport, water, and ICT.
