dc.description.abstractThe National Poultry Policy 2013 addresses the need to create mechanisms that will ensure that the current poultry production is increased and sustained through improving the nutrition, feeding, breeding of indigenous poultry, poultry disease control, biosafety and marketing infrastructure. This policy will put measures to promote value addition, enhance research and training as well as address various cross cutting issues that impact on the industry. The policy is a result of various consultations among stakeholders in the industry. It is consistent with the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs), Constitution of Kenya and the Kenya Vision 2030. It is also developed within the framework of the overall Sessional Paper No. 2 of 2008 on National Livestock Policy that recognizes poultry production as key in the livestock sector. The policy recognizes the potential of poultry production in the improvement of rural livelihoods and proposes options for increased production for economic development. It is envisaged that the content in this policy document will revitalize the poultry industry, guarantee its sustainability and contribute to the economic and social pillars of Vision 2030en_US
