We are thrilled to announce that the Kenya Fertilizer Dashboard, under the Visualizing Insights for African Agriculture (VIFAA) program is live and available to the public.

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.
Government, private sector, and research institutions in one of the VIFAA Kenya Fertilizer Dashboard co-design workshops.
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!
