FAO Kenya Newsletter: July– September 2013

Welcome to the third newsletter of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Office in Kenya this year.

This edition highlights issues on gender and food security and looks at some innovations that are promoting equitable food security. We examine how an initiative on agribusiness support for smallholders is improving the livelihoods of banana farmers. As the countdown to World Food Day fast approaches, key events are lined up including a new award competition aimed at recognizing outstanding contributions by the media in Kenya.
