A County strategy is an essential guide that helps in harmonizing all the players’ activities, giving a clear road map on how to address the subsector challenges and constraints as well as take advantage of existing and new opportunities. The county government of Taita Taveta, International Potato Center (CIP), farmer groups, and NPCK held a validation forum on 3rd September 2021 to validate the draft potato strategy. The draft strategy was developed through a collaborative process between the county and other stakeholders working in the county. The validation meeting was used to receive more comments and inputs from stakeholders for the purpose of enriching the strategy further. The strategy will then be presented to the county assembly’s agricultural committee and the county executive for buy-in and ownership after which implementation will commence.
