A nation whose citizens are well fed is a nation with a productive labour force. A nation with a productive labour force is a nation that is prosperous. The Lake region happens to be one of the most crucial food baskets of this great nation. As such, the Food Security pillar under the Big 4 Agenda is one in which the region must be fully involved in.
Winam Capital is making this possible by organizing the Winam Investment and Innovation Summit. During this four day summit, the Big 4 Agenda and specifically Food Security and Nutrition will take centre stage.
The summit that runs from the 27th to the 30th of November at the University of Nairobi, Kisumu Campus will bring together industry leaders and experts in the food and nutrition sector. Solution oriented dialogues on the Lake region’s readiness to adopt and implement policies that will ensure food security will be discussed extensively.
Investing in the Food and Nutrition Sector
At this summit also, the food and nutrition sector will be scrutinized on how ready it is for investment. It is worth noting that the Lake region is one of the largest producers of maize, a staple food in Kenya and rice. These two products have also been given special focus when it comes to investing under the Big 4 Agenda.
The earmarking of irrigation as one of the tools that will facilitate food security in the country will be discussed at the summit. This is with a view of enabling local producers to get investor funding to set up irrigation systems that guarantee food production throughout the year.
