Information Management PROJECTS
A key component of Kenya’s Agriculture Sector Transformation and Growth Strategy (ASTGS) is to leverage digital technologies in agriculture to increase small-scale farmer incomes, improve year-round food availability, and boost household food resilience for the most vulnerable. To this end, the World Food Programme (WFP) and the National Drought Management Authority (NDMA) are working to digitize their seasonal assessment resources, which are used to track elements of food stocks, production, trade, and consumption, among others. Kimetrica is improving and strengthening the use and function of WFP’s existing seasonal assessment resources by creating custom user-friendly dashboards and data warehousing solutions. The proof of concept and corresponding report will determine next steps towards building a sustainable approach for WFP to capture, manage, and improve the value of the seasonal assessment resources over time for the Kimetrica Food Security Steering Group (KFSSG) member organizations.
