Authors: IGAD Centre for Pastoral Areas and Livestock Development (ICPALD)
Type: Fact Sheet
This factsheet makes a business case for investing in trade of African-grown staple grains and horticultural products in cross-border markets of IGAD Cluster 1 (Karamoja Cluster). The findings are a result of observations, consultative meetings and key informant interviews, focused group discussions as well as field observations conducted in Karamoja Cluster (Karamoja region in Uganda, Turkana and West Pokot counties in Kenya) and from secondary data about South Omo in Ethiopia. They indicate that farmers are applying a number of technologies at both production and productivity; and post-harvest management and commercialisation levels, which can be scaled up for impact.
