Preamble: Agriculture is the backbone of Kenyan economy. It contributes directly 27% of GDP; 65% of export earnings; and 27% of the GDP indirectly through links with manufacturing, distribution and service-related sectors. However, Kenyan agriculture, 98% of which is rain-fed, is highly and increasingly vulnerable to erratic and extreme weather, including prolonged droughts and flooding, which are increasing in frequency and intensity with climate change. Other factors include commodity price fluctuations and crop and livestock pests and diseases.
