New on our Knowledge Center: The Kenya Economic Update April 2018

Published on May 02, 2018

Kenya_Economic_Update_2018.JPGThe Kenya Economic Update is a publication by the World Bank. It indicates that Kenya’s GDP growth is projected to recover to 5.5 percent in 2018, and steadily rise to 6.1 percent by 2020. Agricultural output is expected to rebound (thanks to better rains).

It emphasizes that boosting agricultural productivity and food security will require re-allocating more resources to agriculture and improving the efficiency of current spending in the sector. Specifically, more resources could be re-allocated to support high-return public goods such as extension services and irrigation to small hold farmers.
