The Role of Poultry in Kenyan Livelihoods and the Ex Ante Impact Assessment of HPAI on Livelihood Outcomes
This study uses the nationally representative Kenya Integrated Household Budget Survey (KIHBS, 2005-2006) data and employing quantitative methods to (i) predict and profile those households most likely to be poultry producers and those most likely to keep larger flocks to understand who would be most affected in case of an HPAI outbreak, and (ii) to assess the impact of a potential HPAI outbreak on livelihood outcomes, including income and wealth (value of assets). Such information is expected to assist in the design of efficient, effective, and equitable interventions for mitigation and control of HPAI.
