Low-emission dairy development interventions need to support resilience at farm level and across the value chain. The COVID-19 lockdown in Kenya led to increased prices of hay and concentrates, resulting in increased production costs for farmers. Promotion and development of on-farm fodder production and conservation is an important strategy for ensuring resilient dairy production. Stable milk and input prices enhance predictability of returns for farmers, making it possible to plan and invest in more resilient dairy production. Development and promotion of ICT-based extension systems will reduce costs of extension and enable the provision of critical information to farmers, even during external shocks. Sustainable linkages between input suppliers and dairy farmers will ensure stable supply of essential input to farms.
