Agriculture Sector Network (ASNET) is the umbrella body representing the collective voice of the agriculture sector in Kenya. ASNET serves as the agriculture sector board for the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA).
It was founded in 2020, through a partnership of Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI), Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) and the SDG Partnership Platform at the United Nations, Elgon Kenya Limited, other like-minded business associations, private sectors, development partners and other stakeholders.
ASNET’s key role is to coordinate agriculture sector actors in Kenya through various mechanisms to engage in policy advocacy and value chain development that promote increased productivity, competitiveness and attracts investments into the agriculture sector.
ASNET endeavors to be the lead entity in advocacy for a competitive and enabling environment for the sector at county, national, regional, continental and global levels. This is envisaged to be achieved through strong partnerships with National & County Governments and development partners and other stakeholders to revolutionize the agriculture sector leading to growth, inclusive wealth and ultimately the creation of jobs.
