60 Decibels Partnership: How are Kenyan Farmers Faring in the Face of COVID-19?

The COVID-19 pandemic and the government-mandated lockdowns have disrupted agricultural activities across Kenya. Our partner 60 Decibels has been studying Kenyan farmers to understand the impact of the pandemic on their livelihoods and wellbeing through monthly data collection from June 2020-May 2021. We worked together with 60 Decibels for four additional rounds of data collection between March and June 2021 and publishing the results of each round monthly on this page.
