Please watch our short new video on the Learning Activity implemented in February 2017, on the Keekonyokie Slaughterhouse Case Study.

The learning activity was designed as a follow up to the implementation of the innovation plan developed during the Learning Route on Innovative Livestock Marketing from Northern to Eastern Africa – that was held in Kenya in March 2012.

Five years after the 2012 learning route, its benefit is visible, particularly in one of the IFAD funded project in Sudan: the Butana Integrated Rural Development Project (BIRDP) that now is ready and well prepared to implement the Tamboul Slaughterhouse Innovation Plan as designed by the BIRDP participants who took part in the Learning Route on Livestock Marketing in Kenya (2012).
