Kenya Explores Collaboration with Sri Lanka to Manufacture Organic Fertilizers from City Waste

In a significant development for Kenya’s agricultural and environmental sectors PS, State Department for crop development Kello Harsama recently engaged in a productive discussion with a delegation from Sri Lanka, led by Ambassador Kana V Kananathan.

During the meeting, PS Kello Harsama conveyed the delegation’s ambitious intentions to manufacture organic fertilizers using waste materials sourced from the city. The estimated annual production volume is an impressive 120,000 tonnes, with these fertilizers destined to be packaged and marketed as organic agricultural inputs.

The comprehensive plan includes the establishment of manufacturing facilities in key cities such as Nairobi, Nakuru, and Eldoret, with a primary objective of sourcing waste materials from households. This innovative initiative holds the promise of not only enhancing the quality of food production through the use of organic fertilizers but also making significant contributions to the vital task of urban cleanliness and waste management.

This collaborative effort between Kenya and Sri Lanka represents a forward-looking approach to sustainable agriculture and environmental stewardship, positioning both nations as leaders in the promotion of organic farming practices and the responsible management of urban waste.

As discussions progress, stakeholders eagerly anticipate the positive impact of this initiative on food security, environmental sustainability, and the overall well-being of Kenyan communities. Stay tuned for further developments on this promising partnership.
