This chapter explores the nature and extent of deprivation in various smallholder agricultural areas of Kenya, and looks into the reasons behind the success of some areas compared to others in addressing this problem. Access to earning opportunities outside the sector, employment opportunities in the urban and large-farm sectors, and opportunities for exporting non-agricultural products can make a big difference. The chapter identifies important frequently overlooked intersectoral interconnections between agricultural and non-agricultural activities which could address the problem of endemic poverty. It suggests developing the whole economy — urban, industrial, large farm, and smallholder agriculture — to accommodate a rapidly increasing large population.

Keywords:   non-agricultural activities, intersectoral interconnection, food-related poverty indicators, agricultural activities
