Changing climate, land tenure issues, reduction in grazeable lands due to crop development, land degradation, and market access are major challenges facing pastoralists in Kenya today. The ability to cope with these challenges will require new and innovative ways of providing information for decision-making as well as the development of adaptive management strategies for maintaining and improving pastoral livelihoods in this changing environment. Access to information and the capacity to adapt will be critical for coping in these situations. Livestock market information on a near real time basis can provide this needed information to assist pastoralists and other stakeholders in critical risk management decision making.

The National Government in collaboration with development partners are in the process of expanding coverage to the un-covered counties and also increase on the number of livestock species reported. in addition livestock products have been considered for inclusion in the system
