Environmental Change and Maize Innovation Pathways in Kenya: Seeking Resilience through Diversity (maize briefing 1)

  • Published 30/11/10

In Kenya, STEPS Centre research partners from the African Centre for Technology Studies (ACTS), the Centre for African Bio-entrepreneurship (CABE), Tegemeo Institute at Egerton University, in association with the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and Science and Technology Policy Research (SPRU) at the University of Sussex, UK, have been collaborating on a study to examine ‘Environmental Change and Maize Innovation Pathways’.

This briefing paper describes the team’s efforts to analyse the potential of, and constraints on, alternative ‘pathways in and out of maize’, the country’s key staple cereal crop, in the face of dynamic environmental, social and technological change.

This is the first in a series of seven briefings on our Maize project.
