    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) partnered with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Ethiopian Ministry for Livestock and Fishery to hold the first Africa Sustainable Livestock 2050 (ASL2050) Technical Consultation on the 21st and 23rd of February 2017 and the ASL2050 Regional Launch on the 23rd February 2017. Representatives from Burkina Faso, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda, as well as numerous partner organisations, attended the technical meeting to discuss the future impacts of livestock sector growth on Africa’s environment, public health and livelihoods. In the next 30–40 years, growing demand for meat, milk and eggs will drive significant growth in the African livestock sector. This presents substantial risks to the environment, public health and livelihoods, but also meaningful opportunities for economic growth. ASL2050 will help countries to make long term policy decisions to reduce the risks and max imise the benefits of changing dynamics in the livestock sector. Consensus was reached in three key areas at the technical meeting, representatives agreed to: • take a multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder approach; • establish a national steering committee comprising of a representative from each of the ministries in charge of public health, livestock, and the environment, and an FAO representative; • launch ASL2050, and prepare a work plan within two months, in each participating country. The cons ensus was formalised into a recommendations document that was presented and agreed upon at the regional launch, attended by ministers from participating countries.

    This brief summarises available evidence on the contribution of cattle and poultry to household livelihoods in Kenya. It relies on available information, including government and research reports and papers. In particular, it attempts to differentiate how cattle and poultry contribute differently to household livelihoods in the different production systems. These production systems were selected and characterized by stakeholders, including the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and the Ministry of Health, as part of the implementation of a one health approach aimed assessing the current and long-term impact of livestock production systems on the economy and people’s livelihoods, on public health and on the environment.
