Final Report – Lessons from the field: building from field experience to improve support for beekeeping in Kenya and Uganda

Beekeeping Project Report

Project Title:  Lessons from the field: Building from field experience to improve support for beekeeping in Kenya and Uganda.

Background: ABRC, with funding from an Irish agency, Misean Cara, set out to learn lessons from the reality of beekeeping, under field conditions, in Kenya and Uganda, during 2015 and 2016. Some 53 of the best Kenyan and Ugandan beekeepers were interviewed in depth on their farms, the legacy of 12 beekeeping projects was examined, and key stakeholders were consulted. This free 71 page report details the findings, conclusions and recommendations of the study for beekeeping development in East Africa.

Announcing a New Project: Lessons from the Field

Lessons from the field:  building from field experience to improve support for beekeeping in Kenya and Uganda

African Beekeeping Resource Centre (ABRC), has been awarded 12-month funding by the Irish organisation Misean Cara to identify ways of improving support for beekeeping in Kenya and Uganda.  The project is in collaboration with the Franciscan managed Baraka Agriculture College, Kenya and Adraa Agriculture College, Uganda.  The project will analyse donor-funded beekeeping projects to see if they are delivering the anticipated result of better livelihoods for poor beekeepers and their families. The field work will lead to improved training guidelines, and will inform an advocacy campaign to influence the kind of support provided to the sector by donors and development agencies.

We hope you find the scope of this project of interest and value, and we look forward to providing further updates as the work proceeds. Please get back to us if you would like more information in the interim.

Kind regards
