Government, private sector, and research institution stakeholders at a VIFAA Kenya Fertilizer Dashboard co-design workshop

Over the last year, Development Gateway has worked in close partnership with Africafertilizer.org(AFO), the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), the Kenya Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, County governments, numerous private sector companies, and development partners to understand the cycle of demand, supply, and use of Kenya’s fertilizer data. Together we have co-designed a dashboard to address key decision-making needs, prioritizing data such as fertilizer price, production and consumption data, and identifying new opportunities to collaborate in closing data gaps.

The interactive, user-friendly site enables users to:

  • View key data on fertilizer price, use, availability, and policy in one place;
  • Interact with different products and crops across years of data; and
  • Download data in a variety of formats.

The Kenya Dashboard is the first of three, with dashboards for Nigeria and Ghana soon to follow. Check back for further details!

For a deeper dive into the indicators on the dashboard, read blog 1 and blog 2 in this series.
