Call for Investment in Priority Value Chains

The Government of Kenya, through the Bottom-up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA), is
committed to driving economic and inclusive growth through an agricultural value chain approach.
This strategy aims to transform the agriculture sector, increase productivity, eradicate hunger,
reduce the cost of living, create jobs, and promote inclusive growth.

In alignment with this approach, the Land Commercialization Initiative (LCI) is committed to
identifying suitable land for investors interested in leasing land for production within any of the
strategically important value chains highlighted under BETA. Below are the current priority value
