For the kickoff, Lia van Wesenbeeck conducted a mock interview with a local farmer to highlight the functioning of the dedicated software. Following the first visits, feedback provided by the students was discussed with the ILRI field officer and the local project leader from the University of Nairobi, and some adjustments to the software have been made. Finally, local markets for food and cattle were visited to gain background information on local food variety and options for expansion of production, and a roundtrip through the area provided key insights in the extent to which CSA uptake already had an impact on vegetation and water holder capacity. The project is now up and running, and it has a promising future.
