Upscaling of Food and Nutrition Security Research Projects -NRF004/2023

Food and nutrition security is a pressing issue affecting millions of individuals worldwide, particularly in low and middle-income countries. Despite concerted efforts to enhance food and nutrition security, many still need access to adequate, safe, and nutritious food. Developing and implementing sustainable food systems is imperative to ensure food security in Kenya. Research on agriculture and food systems is critical in improving food production, distribution, and nutrition. Therefore, addressing these challenges requires a comprehensive approach encompassing research into various food and nutrition security topics. Despite the National Research Fund (NRF) investing in fund research on food and nutrition security, there are still some gaps in regard to transforming research outputs into tangible goods and services. Hence, the need to upscale previously funded research projects to ensure they achieve their intended impact.
